Sweet and malty aromas of bread with an alcohol tinge. Pours dark dark brown with a dissipating tan head with massive lacing. Big round sweet and assertive tastes of brown bread and malt with a surprising hops finish that makes the taste journey complete. Medium carbonation. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, wood and smoke.
Turbid/opaque orange/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and wood; ends slightly dry smoke.
This beer is rather intense, deep and complex with loads of character. It is really unique and thus really stands out.
