Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for providing. Breakfast beer to kick off my trip to the USA; it’s now 5:16am. Pours a kind of muddled russet with a large, frothing tan head that fades into a short cream. Nose gives off a hefty dose of smoked caramel, toast, ripening fruits. Light sweet flavor with further smoked caramel character, some dry leaves, mellow toasty bread. It’s not as sweet as I had expected, or as sweet as I would have hoped. Light bodied with lively, explosive-in-the-mouth carbonation. Dries out slightly to finish, more leaves, light bitterness, mellow smoked malts, dry caramel. Not an altogether great beer. Quite rough around the edges.

Izraelio mini bravoro tamsusis alus su barsukais ant etiketės. Išlenda rūkyto salyklo poskonis. Bet šiaip 22 balai drąsiai.

Backlog rating. Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, Gunnar tasting. Thanks to Chris for this one. It pours a hazy amber color with a large tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, ashes, smoked bacon, toffee. Taste is medium sweet and lightly roasty, with notes of smoked toffee, espresso, dried leaves, toasted bread. Finishes quite bitter and dry, ashy. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

erickok (5405) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2014
Brown murky body and small frothy lasting head. Lots of smoke, leather, fermentation aromas, bit nutty, not much of a hop presence. Somewhat odd mouthfeel, low in carbonation yet spritzy. Lager like taste, basement aromas. Unique leathery appeal. Perhaps some sulphur or something that makes it quite hard to like. I do very much like the ending of this beer, which is long but ready for another sip. Interesting beer though and I totally belief it would pair well with mustard and pork sausages! A beer that grows on me. (33cl bottle, traded with some dudes at Borefts, thanks!)
