Pours dark Amber. Not very flavorful but still drinkable. Would not want to session drink though.

Bottle. Filtered cola brown with a short tan head. Malty aroma with dominant notes of fig / date / raisin, toasty brown malt, and toffee/butterscotch. Medium bodied, sweet with measured bitterness, rough texture, somewhat grating carbonation, finishing somewhat syrupy and filmy with a finish of buttered toast and dates with finishing hops expressed as leafy vegetables and old citrus. Altogether a decent attempt, certainly more flavorful than anything else to be found in the local Supermercado, with no glaring imbalances or fermentation defects, but it is rather basic. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2016

A rather raw, crude bock attempt...very malt syrupy and simple. ghawener (1614) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - OCT 25, 2014
