Tap. Huge light tan head on an almost black hue that’s more like a deep, dark brown. Rich maltiness and sweetness that’s balanced by a muted hop presence. Rich maltiness, with plums and dark candy sugar. Very thick body, and very soothing. Nice sipping brew and thanks to Alejandro at Bir & Fud.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark Brown in color. Kind of muddled. Nutty. Like a huge nut brown ale. Big malts. Buttery, sweet, salty, but with some bitter hops. Interesting beer that I don’t find overly pleasant to drink. Pretty good but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a bubbly dark brown head that dissipated quickly. Aroma has notes of dark grains with a strong alcohol undertone. Flavor is full of dark grains and a bit of dark bread as well. The alcohol is less present and the beer is quite smooth. A lot of sediment at the bottom.

This one is a good few years old. Bran flakes an blackberries on the nose. Sweet black cherries fil the mouth entirely. Absolutely beautiful subtle and smooth. No hint of the alcohol at all. Cherries, cherries, cherries. Crazy drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 2nd January 2009
Very dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Hard to pin down. Slightly sour like a porter but has a chocolatey character. Like a hybrid of a porter and a Belgian brown. Dry finish with a sour malt aftertaste and a little chocolate too. Unusual!
