I have bought some bottles at the brewery...It ewas a big disappointment. Flat, acidic, empty, not good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear almost black with a small off-white head. Aroma is slightly weak but gives some tobacco, dark chocolate and smoke. The flavour is of chocolate, some more weak tobacco and a candy-like sweetness. The bitterness is medium, and the finish is a little charry.
