Bottle at WWT3. Poured a deep mahogany with a bubbly white head. The aroma is big dry malt with some resin. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with lots of alcohol inspired liqourice on the palate too. A nice beer to taste but not one for a "session".

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 11.07.2013, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange, broth, dark malts, dough, grass, caramel, soy sauce, almond essence, dark sugar, alcohol, toast, chocolate. Taste is slightly harsh and sweet, dark malts, grass, hops, dark sugar, burnt caramel, heather, citrus peel, almond essence. Medium bitterness, king of metallic mouthfeel. Fair enough, not really my kind of beer.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark brown, big dense head. Smells of fruits, berries, caramel, malts, oak and belgian yeast. Heavy sweet, nice heavy malt base, dark fruits, raisins, oak and hints of alcohol. Medium to heavy bitter. A very interesting beer with a pedigree from the Ratebeer community. Fun to try this beer where all planning was done here on the site. Hail to Ryan for this good beer, and to all the rb’s that joined the brewing. For the beer itself i have to say it’s quite nice. Maybe still to raw; it could probably need some more age
