3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2009 Pours a darkbrown, almost black color with a nice, stable light brown head.
Aroma is a bit peculiar and surprising at first. Notes of smoke, pine forest, some dull(?) fruitiness, slightly of burnt malt.
Taste is malty, smokey and a bit spicy (christmas spices) with notes of pine-needles. Lightly sourish.
Mouthfeel is pretty filling, the beer is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall pretty nice beer from Dugges, but maybe lightly infected?
