Maltbomb. Roasty, surprisingly creamy body for the color, and a rich finish. Clover (or is it thistle?) notes and barbecued pork rounded out my sample. Nice, and I hope to try it again.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes nutty, like burnt toast, roasted malt, tobacco, and bitter coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like nuts, tobacco, roasted malt, and toast.

I thought this was a solid Scottish ale. Not much nose.. Hints of smoke and peat. Flavors are all malts with a bit of a watery finish. Nice chewy mouthfeel with dark fruit and peat.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is a very dark copper color, almost brown, with a big, fluffy tan head. Aroma is lots of sweet malts and a hint of chocolate. Taste pretty well follows the nose. It’s a tad more watery than I expected, but still good. I like it.

Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. Very malty and sweet with caramel, candy, caramelized sugar and some dried fruit. It reminds me a bit about GD Hibernation. Yet another great beer from FFF.
