dnicolaescu (733) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 14, 2014
BOTTLE 341ml from Boystout, thanks Anatol! Look: pitch black with big dark espresso-like creamy head with good retention. Aroma: very fresh for a beer this dark, hoppy, a little piney, with some fresh spice and also some yeast spice, light alcohol/solvent when warms up. Taste: spicy and herbal hops, some freshness like „Halls” cough drops, restrained roasted malts, moderate bitterness - just right, no alcohol.

A unique beer. Delicious with its eclectic choice of ingredients.
