Otroligt grumlig, som gammalt rostskadat brunnsvatten. Mycket smakrik, bra beska. Som utlovat gungar den perfekt till grillen.

Tastes of floral, toast, biscuit, light pine, caramel and toffee, light cocoa. Medium body with a dry finish. Nice hopped up Imperial Brown.

(bottle - 500 ml) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Nutty and hoppy aroma with some caramel and toffee hints. Flavor is smooth and sweet at the start with a good nutty middle and a lightly bitter finish. Was kind of hoping there’d be sausage in it. [9/12/15]

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown pour from a bottle I picked up in AZ. Kind of a creepy label. Slight off white head and some lacing. Malty nose with a hint of bourbon booze. Roasted, smoked malt taste with some booze and a strong hop presence. Not really my thing. Wish I had a hotdog to go with this, as the label suggests.
