Herbal taste and licorice. Low carbonation and a huge amount of residual sugar. Unconventional but tasty...

Malty sweet aroma, clear dark red, frothy decent beige head, leaves nice lacing. Medium sweet, bit metalic, lightly bitter aftertaste. Some herbal notes in taste and aftertaste. Medium bodied, _lively_ carbonation. Didn’t know what to expect of it "KOYT" told me exactly nothing. Quite nice.

Mooie roodbruine kleir bier met cremekleurige kraag. Geur is moutig en kruidig en licht metalig. De smaak is moutig, zoet, kruidig, specerijen. De textuur is wat olie-achtig. Een heerlijk bier, bijzonder!

thirstyrabbit (1413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, medium to small tan head. Herbal aroma with herbal tea plants like oregano etc. Sweet caramelly taste with raisins, mild cinnamon and more herbs. Pretty much exactly the kind of beer you get when you imagine a dark Belgian strong ale with different kind of herbs. Sugary finish. Maybe a bit too sweet.
