Bottle shared in London - cheers to Daniel. Pours clear amber with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma has some berries, brown bread, cherry. Light to medium sweet flavour with toasted grains, figs, berries, a little earth. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with bready sugars, more berries. So so overall.

Couleur brune intense, mousse qui se fait la malle assez rapidos. Très caramel en bouche avec des notes de potiron, mais ça doit être la patate douce en fait. Facile à boire et très agréable.

CurlyJoe (242) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
Very sweet smell with an earthy undertone. Initially sweet to taste too, like sweet potato, and then quite bitter. Cloudy brown in appearance with very little head.

Great amber - a faint hint of sweet potato in there that works very well with the sweet taste of caramel from the malt and spicy notes from the hops. Quite light and watery - worked very well chilled and accompanying Japanese food. Great find.

Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2016
HHOK 19. Mahogany body, khaki head. Aroma has sweet malt, cookie dough, alcohol, dark fruits and fig. Flavour is quite flat and floury. Watery and poor when warms.
