Bottle. 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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
