Dry malty aftertaste with roasted & sourish hints. Caramel, espresso and a nice malty-dry aftertaste with only hints of bitterness. Nice!!

Kahuna1337 (41) - Mariehamn, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Dark brown/copper colour with white head. Not a very strong aroma, a little hint of chocolate. A little maltiness and sweetness to the taste, nothing extraordinary though. A little smokey. Okay on it’s own, much better paired with a steak

jamestulloch (3366) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy brown body with a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, stewed tea, metal, nuts and maple syrup. Weak flavour of red apple, toffee and nuts. Thin body with an oily texture. Almost flat carbonation. Just ok, a bit boring.
