I must say I did not like this at first taste. But the flavor is very complex and very different. It grows on you. This is the most interesting beer I have ever had. I loved it by the time I finished the glass.

Poured as a taster at regular Friday tasting. Aroma is slightly salty actually. Taste is surprisingly malty and chocolate. There is a touch of salt on the taste. Pretty interesting.

Pretty malty flavor. Not sweet. Tiny, tiny, tiny hint of seaweed aroma/flavor....but might just be my imagination. Decent ale. Nothing great.

Poured from a 22. Appearance is much darker than I expected. Mouth feel is very light and easy. It does have a roasty flavor and even though it is thin, it has a nice balance to it. I liked this beer, it was not weird at all.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Appearance: color was darker than I expected. Aroma: roasty and slightly malty, with hints of caramel and chocolate. Taste/Palate: thin throughout; begins sweet and crisp, and finishes creamy and slightly salty and astringent. Kind of a strange beer, but not entirely undrinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Porterish aroma of chocolate, roast and some coffee. Some mineral notes in here and also an element that I am not able to name. Maybe itís the seaweed but since I donít know the smell of seaweed that happens not to rot after being spilled on the beachside, Iím not sure. Light tart taste with some dark malts but overall itís watery and lacking any punch. For a malt-forward beer like this a bit more body would be welcome. Ah yes, the seaweed. Well, there seems to be a salty note in here, thatís all. Iím afraid itís more a first world gadget than a beer that is supposed to taste great.

Malty aroma, but some bitterness on the taste, thought there might be a salt kick from the seaweed, but couldnít taste it .
