Svart med beige-brunt skum. Syrlig, brett-preget ogf ruktig, med toner av brent malt og røyk i aroma. Syrlig anslag, litt oljete munnfølelse, brent ettersmak. Mister litt stout-preget, men en godt og artig øl.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with daje, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Pours jet black with a thin brown head. Smell of roast, dark dark malts and coffee, dark fruits and funky brett. Medium to heavy sweet, quite brett infused, light fruity brett flavors with a funky touch, roast, coffee and chocolate in the back. Moderate earthy bitter finish. A well crafted beer. For med the flavors are going too much in different directions to decleare it an epic beer, but to take it for what it is, it’s still a great beer!
