Full bodied, slightly tannic and drying on the palate with a herbal earthy finish. Taste is cherry wood, coffee, earthy hops. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. A gusher, almost clear though, topped by a dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. Dark brown in color. Roasted malts, lots of chocolate, some dried fruits and a faint yeast note on the nose. The flavor has vanilla and coffee blending in with the roasted malts and chocolate known from the aroma. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish. A decent beer, but a tad boring I think. Lacks depth. 140530

Very dark brown with huge light beige head. Sour berries, some weird musty taste like old spice mix, rye, cola, light nuts, light citrus and pine. Some grains and a hint of coffee. Sour with bitter finish. Medium bodied, way too much carbonation. This is kind of weird, quite interesting though but the carbonation doesn’t help.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 very weird stout, some berries? weird... spicy and some darkness, coffee far too deep in the back... medium thick.. bit of a failed experiment
Wijnerig aroma, bitter... vervelend viesdonkertje... verder wel erg interessant om te drinken nlc (93) - Amsterdam & Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
It’s a quite nice but weird stout. It has everything but it also contains a weird taste of berries/jeneverbessen.
