Blij deze te kunnen drinken. Een warm, wijnig bier, maar niet barley achtig. Fruitig, koffie/caramelachtig en ook nog een beetje rokerig. Grappig. jrh2254 (142) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
From a beer hawk mystery case. Was 7.5% Pours dark brown with a thin head at about 4degrees c. Little aroma. Taste of malt ,chocolate and whisky overtones. Smooth, sweet and very nice for a change. Not a session ale !

mørk mahogni i fargen med fint skum. Karamell, vanilje noe røykt torv og lett tobakk preger både lukt og smak. Silkemykt yngwie (17109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2017
Bottle, at Duggfrisk. A dense, pale beige head forms over an unclear brown body. The aroma has lots of sweetish toffee, with dirt and some chocolate and coffee. It’s full-bodied and quite sweet on the palate, smoothly carbonated, and with toffee and dark sugary sweetness dominating. Some chocolate and coffee chiming in, and there’s a good bitterness as well. Lasting sweet, malty finish. A really pleasant scotch. 160820 thejackpacker (529) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from beer hawk. It is a red wine of a beer, deeply flavourful and sour. Spicy on the palate. I find it an uncomfortable half way house though of sour and barrel aged. Aroma is very much like port (wine, raisin, molasses). Nice but wouldn’t get again; no doubt exemplary for its style.
