bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle. Nearly opaque dark brown beer with brown partially lasting head. The aromas is of cough syrup, cherries, licorice, spruce, pine, roasted malt. The flavor is like chewing on a spruce tree with a fire nearby. It’s not that sweet and is very bitter. Feel is astringent and tannic after fairly thick and lively start. Super awesome.

foxo82 (649) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at Little Delirium, Brussels. Black with a thick white top. Complex aroma of sweet fruitcake, grassy malt, coffee and liquorice. Taste initially malty, giving way to bittersweet intense coffee. Very long bitter finish - perhaps too much so for my tastes but I still really like this, despite it being so hard to drink.
