Draught sample at BEERS 2015, Tel Aviv. Deep brown with medium brownish head. Stinky aroma of carob and cat’s piss with hint of butter. Flavor of carob, coffee and some dark chocolate, a bit creamy. Moderate carbonation, medium to full-bodied. A bit weird.

Draught sample at Beers 2015. Brown black with a beige head. Smell of carobs, roasted malt, caramel and vegetables. Taste - roasted malt, carobs, date honey, a bit of green grassy flavors, slightly unbalanced. Medium-bodied. Not bad, but I expected for more.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught sample during a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Pours black opaque. Sweet, charob scent with a hint of grass. Mouth: sweet, syrup and some very light bitterness. Medium-bodied, watery with long finish. Not very carbonated. I understand that this was some sort of an experiment and I’d like to try it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2015 Re-rate 8/11/15: Draught sample at Beers 2015 festival. Black with a light brown head. Aroma of minerals, something vegetal, roast, chocolate, an orange note, and a bit of sanitizer. Roasty flavor with coffee, dark fruits, carob, a bit of orange, a bit of sanitizer, and weird bitterness. Medium-bodied. Has some good elements, but there’s some weird stuff going on as well. 5/4/5/3/10=2.7
Draught sample during a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Black-colored. Aroma of carobs, dark chocolate and a bit of roastiness. Sweet roasty flavor with carobs, chocolate and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied, a bit watery. This could use a bit of more body, but still it’s pretty pleasant and easy-drinking. The carobs blend in very well here and give nice, interesting and unique chocolate nuances. This batch was made with a homebrew kit and served at the brewery pub. I need to try it again once it’s made with the brewery’s real equipment. 7/3/6/3/13=3.2
