Jan 2013 - draught. Not bad. Strong flavour - full, rich, hoppy. Drying in the mouth, but not overly bitter. I wasn’t a massive fan, but the barkeep said he thought it was lovely. Each to their own I guess.

On tap at Man in the Moon in Stockholm (during the IPA festival). Smell of ash and smoke. Toasty smell with flowers, earth. Not very hoppy, I wonder if this was old. Not very tasty.

Quite integrering beer, but maybe it's more interesting than good. The first thing that strikes me is a buttery but even more grassy after taste. Interesting to taste, but I wouldn't buy a bottle of it.
