so nice to have a beer with no barley malt or hop character. aroma of wood-aged port. strong vanilla taste, some oak and definite juniper in the finish. no sign of any carbonation but it still left a decent lacing on the glass. really interesting stuff. i wish we hadn't been so rushed, i'm curious as to how beer like this stands up to a good session

apparently made according to a medieval gruit recipe, with rye, juniper, honey, yarrow, rosemary and other stuff i can't remember. it's amber-brown with no head. taste is intriguing, bready, spicy like gingerbread, with full honey slickness and a finish full of subtlety including wood, toast, pepper, and more i'm sure if TAR was drinking it for example. nice and warming, i dunno the abv but it mustve been 6 or so. so when is james squire brewhouse going to make a gruit?
