500ml bottle. Beautiful thick creamed coffee colored head which diminishes to nice lacing. Dark molasse color, cloudy. Hoppy pungent aroma with hops and pitch, some dark chocolate. Semi oily palate. Flavours of roasted malts and juniper. Pleasantly bitter end.

Aroma is proprietary yeast and dry malts. The flavor is malts, yeast, mild scotch/peat, a hint of chocolate and a mix of berry sweetness and dry in the finish.

kran, Jabeerwocky. miedziano-brazowe, bez wiekszej piany, karmelowo-sliwkowo-iglakowe, bardzo stonowane i w sumie ugrzecznione. slodkie w smaku, bez wiekszej goryczki, z byc moze jalowcowym (a byc moze to sugestia) poszczypywaniem w jezyk. nie robic specjalnego wrazenia

Patrickctenchi (5078) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle: Hazy dark brown with a bit of red tint, short, off-white head. Bready and nutty caramel scent. Dried, dark fruits, caramel malt flavour......a slight evergreen cooling feel to it, followed by a bit of warm spice... Slightly boozy and sweet. Not bad.

Nonshaugen (130) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2015
Slightly hazy, nut-brown colour. Managed to get a rich, three-finger off-white to tan coloured head in my lager glass, by a rigorous pour. Sweet aroma immediately present, even 30 cm away from my nose, dark fruits and alcohol up front. Taste is bitter, dark fruits and caramel sweetness at the same time. And it’s very clear that this is NOT going to get a high rating from me. This is not my kind of beer. Sorry, I didn’t like it.

tomekk1978 (998) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Aromat: dość skromny - karmel plus owoce, głównie śliwki. alkoholu niewiele.

Wygląd: jasno rubinowa barwa, zamglona. Piana w kolorze ecru, średniej wielkości i umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: karmel, śliwki, rodzynki, czekolada, herbatniki. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, z pewnością niższa niż sugerowana. Średnia do krągłej pełnia, niskie do umiarkowanego wysycenie i owocowa oraz alkoholowa końcówka.
