Thanks to Ron P.! Been in the cellar for nine months I guess. Pours thickly hazy orange-amber with a bunch of large-ish floaties in there (I did not agitate before pouring, so... weird.) Nose of tinny caramel, burnt sugar, marmelade, earthy hop, vanilla cookie. Tangy, lightly sweet, fairly bitter, more tinny metallic notes, it does have a tang to it. Well balanced and interesting but also a bit rough. That bitterness builds in a nice way. Would like to see this tried again.

33cl Bottle from Sterk. Slightly hazy orange-amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of dates, caramel, raisin, yeast, candy. Flavour is medium sweet, dry, fruity, date, candied fruits/ confit, sludge / dirt that I find in all their beers since they started brewing on their own kit, bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Not great.
