3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very little carbonation but nice lightly fizzy mouthfeel, as enchanting plum, chocolate and cedar flavors and touch of sweetness yield to a stiffening frame of hops. This is a really unique beer that is a style of its own. Purchased at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam and quaffed at home in Madison.
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 14-10-2016, at Viisi Penniä, 20160101) The beer poured mahogany red and hazy. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had molassess, caramel, chocolate and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, caramel, molassess, grass, herbalness and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet, malty and bitter. A complex brew: starts very sweet and malty but the hops turn the brew rather spicy and herbal towards the finish. Quack-Duck (9487) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015

Bottle from Prima Beer. 8 % ABV. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, light spicy and dried fruit. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish. A bit weird. 250515 larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
Small brown head. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark red at
bottom. Fruity buttery toffee aroma with seeds of paradise and
licorice notes. Sweet roasty syrupy linoleum taste with mealy
chocolate notes. Full-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish roasty
sherry aftertaste with toffee syrup and earth notes. Nice and
drinkable, but perhaps a bit dense and heavy. (0.33l bottle, I have no
idea where from. Batch #134.) MonsterMagnet (1536) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, batch SCR-195 (bb nov 2015), 8% abv. Pours murky brown with a frothy off-white head. Aroma: medicinal, honey. Taste: berries, nuts, peat, caramel, cocoa, moss. Medium sweet and bitter (3 IBU according to label?!), fairly thin body, long bitter earthy finish. This is a weird beer, one moment it’s good, the next something’s off.
