[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear dark amber. Fruits and peat hits my nose heavy at first contact. Fairly sweet with some green apples and near full body. Lots of malt in here, and the mouthfeel is gracefully soft, but green apples disturbs.

Rich plummy aroma. Hazy brown color with a beige/tan head that flattened very quickly. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavors are caramel, dark fruit, smoke, and more. It’s very rich and flavorful. Though heat is not noticeable, my body says there’s alcohol here. The finish is something pruney with smoke and light bitter. Quite surprising and palatable.
