Very nice. Huge brown head that dissolves quickly. Dark brown colour with lively carbonation. No sweetness in this one. Pleasant sourness and a flavor that is dominated by dark roasted espresso and yeast. Nice long dry bitter finish. take some time to finish the glass.

Interesting brew. Mostly moderate roasted malts, coffee, dried fruits, berries. Moderate sweet with quite noticeable sourish kick. Feels like farmhouse stout. Not bad, but didnt quite work for me with balance
