Bottle. Pours dark amber with an airy head. Aroma is roasted malts and grain, with kandi, juniper and anise. Oily body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sourish malts with juniper, anise, burned wood and camphor, as well as woody notes of old tree roots. Disappointing.

sthlm (1251) - Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2009
[Bottle, thanks CaptainCougar!] Pours reddish-amber with a beige head. Odd aroma, juniper, some sweet fruitiness, yeast, very bready. Taste has some decent bitterness with a lot of yeast, some identifiable notes that I will attribute to the juniper, and a good deal of malt on the finish. Good mouthfeel with a long finish. Not a bad beer, and very unique.
