Bottle from "AKFaust". Colour...basically black with a thick tan head. Nose...rubber! Especially like old inner tubes that one might use for floating along the Apple River in July while chugging cans of Schmidt or Heilemanns. Oh! There’s also some acetic aroma and generalised fruit. Palate...hmmm...more rubber except that there’s some vinegar with the rubber and a tart fruit aspect with oak.

Fad: Sortbrun øl med et flot skumhoved, let karboneret med en stikkende mundfylde. Bretten og fadlagringen er meget tydelige. Smagen sidder i skabet og viser hvorfor Anchorage er så dominerende indenfor fadlagringen.
