18/I/14 - 33cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 25/VII/13, bottled: 25/VII/13 (2014-85) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!
Clear red brown beer, small beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit smoky, grains, hint of mocha, hay. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: grains, bit smoky, mocha, bad chocolate, some coffee. Aftertaste: bit funky, overripe fruits, caramel, dried fruits, smoky, earthy. Pretty complex for a Middle Eastern beer, but still not very good.
