Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing this bad boy. Deep brown beer with a thin tan head. Unusual caramel/toffee aroma with a strange phenolic edge to it. Yeasty and crackery but again, there’s something not quite right in here. A lingering toastiness. Lightly sweet but thin-bodied. Meh.

Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Chris. dark caramel / red coloured pour with a fleeting halo of off white head. Aroma is salted caramel, funky, soy, hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of musty fruit, funk, dull malts, slight staleing. Palate is watery, thin, moderate carbonation.

33 cl. bottle at home. High fluffy long lasting off-white head. Clear very dark red brown body. Solid base of malt and caramel in the aroma which also has notes of candy sugar. Mild and relatively sweet roasted malt caramel flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish.

RBWG16. Bottle pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan head. The modest aroma offers up dark roasted malts that are sweetened by prunes and blueberries and then it flows into mild spicy black strap molasses. The taste delivers earthy blueberry like esters as well as malts, some prunes, a modest degree of chocolate and then dark roasted malts. This is a really nice tasting roasty offering.

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.
