My bottle was 9.1 % ABV.

The colour is red brown-red, the liquid is clear. The finger thick head quickly sinks down to a thick lid. No lacing occurs.

The smell is dry and bitter with some hints of stale pale lager and red wine. Phenolic yeasty-spicy-plastic flavours (allspice), brown sugar and hints of alcohol.

The taste is smoother than expected. Some yeasty notes, molasses and brown sugar. Bitter hops and herbs. Semi-roasted caramel flavours. Light to medium body. Growing notes of alcohol in the aftertaste as well as molding leaves, green plants and a touch of milk chocolate. Green hoppy notes and brown sugar in the finish.

The carbonation is strong, the many small bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is thin, especially considering the strength.

An unbalanced beer, reminding a bit of a too young/green english strong ale.
