czar (9971) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2017
on tap at griendel, qc. almost cloudy dark copper orange pour, light brown if you prefer, with a very creamy beige head offering good retention and lacing. coffee and dark berry maltiness, smoothly earthy coffee grinds, intricate underlying spices - strong yet integrated sarsaparilla root more than liquorice to me; other roots/bark, peppermint, lots of pepper as well; cola. moderate carbonation, light body - fairly thin; particularly dry (for a gruit) fruity-spicy finish. fun - never sweet - spicy gruit porter.
