ClubGonzo (4370) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle @ Bergen International Whisky & Beer Festival 2015. Slightly hazy dark amber body, large off-white head. Nose is mild green coffee notes, sour citric tones, grape peel, bread dough and hints of nuts and straw. Taste is filter coffee, straw, bitter herbs and hints of hay and caramel. Medium to full body and carbonation. Strange stuff, not quite enough coffee and not quite enough...other stuff either. Not bad, but not really good either.

Mild bitterness, from the coffee. Drinkable but you have to be a real coffee fan. Better shared.
