From Braedon, drank at Jay's house. Dark brown with no head. Smells of herbal tea, light soy sauce, floral grassy hop. Tastes of plum, dark fruit, slightly raisiny and sour, spice, herbal grassy hop. Body is thick, slick, a bit acidic. A slightly weird if interesting beer. Good amount of herbal grassy hop but overall too raisiny/sour.
