abemorsten (2831) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2012
From bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Creamy inch thick rocky brown head on a black body. Whisky barrel notes on roasted malts and sweet liquorice fill the nostrils. Full bodied and with an oily texture, the beer seem to grow slightly in the mouth. Vanilla and sweet liquorice. Oh, and there’s a chili warmth present.
