Deep red dubby colour with medium weak-ish off-white foam. Aromas of sweet caramel malts, dark rye bread in a way similar to gira/kvass. Palate, medium to full body with smooth texture leaving a slightly harsher bitter finish that mellows out quickly. Taste, bittersweet of caramel malts, chocolate and herbal bittering hops. Overall, not bad, nice fairly decent beer. mt_hall (211) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottled. A very dark red-brown, with a minimal light brown head. Aromas of malt, licorice, a touch of smoke, and subtle English hops. A good licorice flavour; sweet and malty at the start and a long, dry finish with a touch of smoke again. Good balance with slight warmth.
