Really good example of what it is. . . warm, spicy and substantial, just like a juicy sammich. With the extra benefit of having the most blatantly phallic label ever. That pickle really dominates the "appearance" to me, but otherwise it’s dark like motor oil, as you’d expect. Roasty and spicy as you’d expect. They get that same slightly bloody flavor that they sometimes bleed from the unicorn. Not the type of brew I’d usually drink, but totally exellent. They could have been stupid and gone all peppercorny on this one but no-- solid, reserved, substantial, complex spice. Really, almost exactly like a good piece of pastrami.

Botella de 65 cl en el lupulo. Septiembre de 2013. Cerveza muy especiada de cuerpo ligero - medio con ligeros toques ahumados y tostados. Domina el sabor especiado en general. No está mal aunque acaba siendo un poco empalagosa

Almost opaque dark brown beer with a small tan head. Palate is slightly viscous and with good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts with a little cream. Sweet bubblegum. Fruity spices and mild smoke. Finishes smooth and sweet. Weird! Like taking a bit of a candy floss covered kebab!! Not unpleasant but I could nit drink loads.
