0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Poured murky and lifeless. Aroma was rancid and smokey medicinal. Tasted Worse. Aftertaste ruined every other beer I had tonight. Would like to say this should be used as a drain cleaner, but I’m afraid the drain would melt. Absolutely the worst beer I have ever tasted. Brewer should commit suicide and save the world.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Looks truly awful. Totally lifeless in every way. Interesting medicinal like aroma which does follow through to the flavour which I shouldn't like, but really I do. I'd love to taste more from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looking like dead lake in a glass, headless with only soft carbonation.
The aroma is surprisingly full, smell malt, oak, some whiskey notes, different sweetnesses, smoke and a sharp clean whiskey-like medical aroma.
Taste is sweet, with the traces of the oak early on the tongue. Medium bitterness I didn’t expect. Very silky and despite its edges very smoothly dropping down the throat. Long varying aftertaste, smoke shows up a bit more.
Very interesting beer, like the whiskey parts of the beer. Very unique, would love with one or two years.
