Flaska från SB. Lite karaktär av mjuk kaka, rejäl maltsötma, ek, lite kryddig åt anis och man kan ana tallskotten. Saknar lite djup i smakerna och känns inte riktigt mogen. Helt ok nu men borde nog stå ett par år.

Light red-brown. On the nose, minty, odd herbaceous nose, thin body, similar palate...honestly this isn’t hitting...needs more sugars.

mcberko (18065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2017
On tap at Apex, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out earthy notes, medium spiciness from the spruce and a bit of bready malt. Flavour is intense, with loads of spruce, earthy notes and spiciness. Rich and abrasive, with light sweetness and high sweetness on the finish. Decent bizarre beer.

A party beer...bottoms up. Aroma of plum, brown sugar, nuts and pine. Taste is caramel, oak, malt, booze with a bitter end. Reddish amber with a thin creamy and frothy dark tan head. Quite good, but the alcohol is prevalent.
