M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark dark brown to black with very thin tan head and heavy lacing. Toasted malts, dried fruits and an ever so small whiff of smoke. Chocolate flavours open the palate along with some dried Christmas fruits, followed by strong, dry roasted malts and a hint of wood smoke. Slightly over carbonated but this settles down as the beer opens up. Really like this beer.

angel77 (2503) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 1, 2014
Botella de 50 cl en casa. 01_02_2014 En el momento. De cimmeria. Lote 453 de 08_03_2012 hasta 08_03_2014. Color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura persistente. Cuerpo medio con textura suave, con 7.5 vol bastante agradables. Aromas tostados y ahumados con toques de maltas algo salvajes y nordicas. Sabores también ahumados y quemados tostados con un toque de cebada y caramelo dulce y un muy ligero amargo final. Bastante buena y fácil de beber con un buen toque ahumado y tostado. Para repetir sin problemas.

pours unclear dark brown with a minimal yet aerial light beige head, some retention and nice lacing. dark roasted malts, some smoked ones too, lots of spices - licorice, aniseed, pepper, herbs, bitter coffee and dirt, resins, molasses - moderate sweetness. lively carbonation - slightly disturbing, light body - oily, grassy-spicy-resinous-bitter coffee finish. interesting.

Bottle (500 ml). Shared by czar, thanks! Brown with a beige head and light lacing. Aroma is smokey with spices, raisins and roasted malt. Taste is also smokey with raisins, spices and light bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Spicy finish. Decent Tradionnal Ale. Quite spicey, but balance isn’t bad either.
