Bottle from brewery. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Notes of bread and dark fruit on the nose and tongue. Hides it's booze really well. Nice. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 3, 2017

Halloween 2016 - Bottle share at Matteo’s spilt coffee tasting. Thanks Leighton! As ’Mystic Day of Doom’, 12%. Very dark brown, no real head. Aroma is boozy, oxidised, rhubarb tart. Body is light with tingly carbonation. Taste is ultra-sweet, caramel and toffee, touch of papery oxidation with a woody finish. OK. (3.0)

Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! 2015 bottle. Pours reddish brown with moderate beige head. Plummy and metallic, caramelly, with hints of strong alcohol like cognac or brandy. Sweet. Soft on the palate, but finishes harsh, pretty boozy. Very nice aroma and flavour, but overall it kinda doesn’t work too well. Marduk (8206) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
750ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear dark amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Caramel, plastic, sweet, alcohol, bit of raisins in aroma. Raisins, sweet, malty, caramel in taste. Sweet and spicy hops in aftertaste. Hopping is nice, but rest is tad too sweet for me. But still nice.
