33cl bottle @ home shared with Thompson.Slightly hazy deep dark red color, small to medium sized light brown head that lasts for quite a while. Smell malts, herbs or spices, soap, perfume: just a really weird mix. Taste malts, herbs or spices again, some sweetness, slightly sour hints. Medium body, medium carbonation.
