Bottle. Funny head: "rose to the occasion", but then suddenly transformed into something resembling cola poured over vanilla ice cream. Initially I liked the look, but the cola/ice cream effect isn’t exactly what I want in my beer! So it ends up in between...Smells good - dominated by yeast, which reminds me of moldy carpets(?). I like carpets, but haven’t ever been licking one, but I took a sip of this beer and found out, that I like the taste of carpet as well. Nothing like the aroma though. Sweet licorice, candy and a nice bitterness. I didn’t expect too much of this beer, but it was a pleasant surprise.

No#53. Aroma is mainly dark fruits, rich and full, with the minty bubblegum smell i love, from heather ale. Taste is also fruity with a good sweet maltness. Very well balanced beer. Excellent.

Adherent foam, dense and of long persistence. Dark brown color, nearly black. Optimal aspect, elegant and decided. Strong and harmonious scent, much flowery and spiced. Decided strong, wrapping and torrefy taste. Much bitter and balanced. Notes of burnt wood and final along of coffee. Discreet fizz. Complex.
