Deep darkest brown pour with small ruby highlights and fizzy beige head. Sweet aromas of treacle and licorice, with a little port wine, vanilla, leather and alcohol. Lots of dark chocolate in the taste, licorice, treacle, coffee, with light vinous notes too. Bitter and spicy hop/rye mid-palate, dry and roasty finish. Light-med bodied and smooth as silk. Excellent. zacgillbanks (5294) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015

On tap (for a short time I presume) at Roundhouse in Hong Kong. Excellent beer all around. Tasted it a while ago so can’t give specific notes but one of my favourite. Strong bitterness. Pours beautifully. Will write more next time I try it! PotjeBier (3450) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2015

k0mpsa (2999) - Tuusula, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
Appearance: Dark brown with a medium easy to revive beige head and little lacing.
Aroma: Molasses, perfumy notes, rye spiciness, peppery notes and light fruitiness( berries).
Taste: Molasses, peppery notes, rye spiciness, perfume notes, light berries and liquorice.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A bit silky. Peppery finish.
Overall: Too perfumy, which has probably something to do with the rye because this is the exact same impression I have with Goose Island Cherry Rye and Backyyard Rye. Lack a bit of balance. Other than that, it’s tasty and enjoyable.
