dreamflower (790) - Steinbach, Manitoba, - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Pours with a cocoa coloured head. Deep dark brown opaque body. Notes of molasses in the aroma. The aquavit barrels have done this beer no favours in my opinion, but I still liked it.

Bottle. A- Anise, smoke, leather, roasty, spuce, campfire. A- Black color, dark liquid, brown head. T- Smoke, char, roasty, tobacco, anise, juniper. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Really interesting stuff. Not sure what aquavit tastes like but its definitely in here because there are flavors I dont recognize. Almost boarderline smoked. Interesting for sure and almost overbearing. Sorta reminded me of a scotch. Great stuff just one of a kind for sure.
