Was looking forward to this but it’s such a let down. Pours viscous black with tiny tan head. Strange aroma of vegetable matter :/ Taste is rather lacking and is strong alcohol. Pretty poor tbh.

Very strange beer that. The smell was only distasteful. But when I drank beer, I thought otherwise. It was tastier in flavor. The aftertaste is long and there is fine. One of the better beers from this brewery.

Doften säger tyvärr inte så mycket men smaken säger desto mer med toner av malt, frukt och choklad. Balansen är ytterst behaglig och kroppen likaså. Slutsats: en riktigt bra öl.

Huh? Retired? It’s seasonal, not retired... Anywho... Pours black with about a finger of nice, thick tan head. Aroma is clear strong porter, with smoke, roasted malt, leather, earth and some german sausage for good measure. It’s not overly bacon-y for which I’m grateful. Taste is nice and thick, initial light bitterness, then a fairly rich sweetness before a balanced lightly bitter finish. Body is full and creamy, with fairly low carbonation. One of my favorites at SB this Christmas.
