Bottle. Dark brown liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, barnyard, horseblanket, bread, chocolate and peat. Obviously brett infected. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, smoke, barnyard and wood. Very, very bretty. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Infected in a not entirely unpleasant way, but still bad. blomster (289) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
Looks like a pop, a bit of peaty aroma, not very good. Dissapointing beer. Don’t really like this SaintMatty (7555) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2012
