This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated body semi-transparent red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was rye and toffee. The vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering vinous aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild pepper toffee mild hops and rye. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottled (backlog). Hazy ambery golden colour with a mediumsized beige creamy head, which leaves good lace. Aroma is fruity, floral, some sweet alcohol as well as some cedar and tobaccoish notes. Flavour is lots of cedar, some toffee, sweet fruits, some resin and mild alcohol to it as well. Good sipper, but also surprisingly easy to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 With a very nasal character, this beer is very drinkable, a little bit spicy and the 10.1% of alcohol is very well integrated. Tasted at Olut, Sabadell.

Bottle shared at Jason’s. A bit off with light body and something off putting. Maybe cedar.

Amber color with beige head. Aroma is really woody with resiny, coniferous notes. Taste is spicy and woody, light caramel malt but not sweet. Finish is slightly bitter and the wood notes continue to shine through. Medium body and carbonation. Really interesting beer, the spicy wood is really different from anything I had before.

750ml bottle. Pours a big frothy beige head and has an amber coppery appearance. Nice big sticky lacing. Aromas of toasted malts, rye, bready malts as well. Flavours of earthy and herbal hops, some notes of toffee, grassy hops. Fruity notes as well. Nice smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Some bitterness on the palate but much more sweet. Pretty good.
