COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English pub ale meets the French farmhouse tradition and American oak aging in this dry, drinkable farmhouse mild ale. Full-flavored, but brewed with enough restraint to be highly sessionable. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned.

Dark,appears to be clear with red hue.Some froth, quick sugary decending lace. Nice aroma of berries and coconut,chocolate and vanilla. Taste has mild chocolate, light toast,light sweet,some citrus mild tartness.Good body and good tasting for a 3.5%er. Could easily kill this tastey bomber but you can sip this one like a nice barleywine as well.

Dark brown pour with a large tan head. The aroma is full of oak with some toffee and caramel notes. I also get a little hazelnut character in the aroma. The flavor is very nice. In addition to the roasted malt and toffee notes, I really like the light oak character. I also get a hint of grass and earth in the flavor. Medium carbonation and a creamy, medium mouthfeel. Very nice overall.

Bottle from Ølhandleriet enjoyed at home
Dark brown, thin beige head. Smells of roasted malts, caramel, hints of jester king farmhouse yeast, some nuts and dried fruits. Moderate sweet, dried fruits and caramel, roast, quite dry mouthfeel. Moderate bitter finish. Very easy drinkable, nice low alcohol that makes the drinkability even higher. Nice company to food

ContemplateBeer (1581) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Aroma: (8- very high quality) Moderate roast with some coffee, but not coffee-centric; malted chocolate balls; pronounced lactic quality; a touch of oak. Appearance: (4- high quality) Murky dark brown at the core, but lightens up quite a bit around the edges; the head settles into a bone ring. Flavor: (8- very high quality) Matches the nose. The oak is more evident, but the roasty and lactic notes are the main show, the latter being even more evident as the beer warms. Palate: (4- high quality) Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. "Light" and "thin" are not usually words that I find favorable in describing a good texture for a beer, but they really work here. Overall: I really enjoyed this; was paired by surprise with a Guinness chocolate cake, and it was a winning combination. Interesting, but thoughtfully executed.

Carbonation is very light. The beer is almost still with little head. The color is very dark walnut but not opaque. Oak has produced pronounced vanilla character. The beer is very light but a chalky mouthfeel adds substance. This is certainly unique and interesting.
