Bottle. Shared by bergstaden. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. Some lacing. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and a faint earthy and fruity-sourish/berry-sourish and smoked hint. Tar, caramel, earth, cocoa hints, sourish fruityness and some smoke and berries in the flavor. Some alcohol warmth in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and semi-sweet. Lasting finish. Nice indeed, but far from easy drinkable. 151001 gunnfryd (14978) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015

330ml botte from Slow Beer. Worth getting this beer just for the label never mind the beer. Yet another collaborative brew and this one pours a light back tea colour with a thinnish layer of tan foam. Spiced fruit aromas of prunes, raisins and plums are strong and invite you in to and take a drink. Big, bold and bad ass in the mouth with mouth numbing flavours and very lively on the palate. Aniseed is strong in the flavour and aftertaste.

Bottle, 13C. Dark brown with a light tan head that soon fades to a coat. Aroma of berries, medicinal herbs, rye bread, lemon, licorice, light peat, singed grain. Quite light bodied - vacillated about whether it could do with more presence. Taste is barely sweet with smoke, sourish rye bread, bitter herbs and licorice. Peat and licorice build up in the dry finish. gam (3964) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2012

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Some ok lacing is left. Nose immediately shows some funk and smoke. Works nicely together. There’s also some citrus and funky melon. Taste shows some more smokiness and it grows throughout. Only slight sourness with melon and sweet fruits front up. Finishes very dry with warming alcohol. Very nicely done. Quality brew Davros (3209) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2012
Pours very dark brown with a creamy off-white head.
Nose shows spicy phenols, overt citrus notes, gooseberries, pepper, doughy wheat and an almost Brett-like funky note. Later on peated malt becomes quite noticeable. Pretty wierd. Like a spicy lemonade and lime drink with brett and peated malt added.
Flavours are even more interesting. Burning leaves, faint smoked hame, spicy rye, prominent peated malt, and again, a faint citrus-like acidic note. After a few sips the peat seems to dominate, overriding everything else.
Carbonation is excessive. Nice warming alcohol though.

Dark body with short head. Rye and peat on the aroma, a little bit of aniseed and liquorice also coming through in the taste.
