Woodshed 2.0. Bottle picked up at De Molen. The 37.5cl bottle pours with a deep mahogany body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up blueberry, prunes, black strap molasses and spicy black licorice. The taste is nectar like richness with blueberry fruity sweetness, spicy black licorice, prunes and brown sugar sweet black pepper. Nice rich sipper. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Bottled. Very close to black colour, small off-white head. Aroma is mild spices, fruits, plum, toffee and ripe fruits. Flavour is the same along with alcohol. Quite thick body. jookos (6973) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle (4705). Black with low head. Nose is interesting: this is pretty much exactly what grated ginger in soy sauce smells like. The semi-sweetness of ginger, dark roasty soy licorice. Sweetish malts. Body is a bit oily, but not overpowering thick. Ginger, a bit of peppers/chili, soy sauce, licorice, but also sweet malts. Feels almost salty. A bastard of an ale, but I’m glad to have drunk it. The ginger lightens up the soy-licorice-sweetness, throw in some coriander and you would have a good asian beef marinade.

Full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and flat carbonation. A well composed barley. sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - MAY 4, 2013
