(Sample from a bottle at RBESG 2017 Grand Tasting) The beer poured clear and nearly black. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had paint thinner, wood and berries. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were tartness, wood, berries, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart and bitter. A brew with scary aroma and nice taste. martjoobolut (5122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2017
