A: Pours a dark brown with a large foamy mocha head.

S: Musty malt, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and oak in the nose. Smells like most old ales, but spicy.

T: Dark fruit and maybe some berries. With the yeast it tastes chocolatey and roasty. An odd dichotomy.

M: Medium bodied, smooth enough.

O: Pretty good festive ale. Recommended.

Okay so I know enough not to expect your typical old ale here as its Haand...
nice deep brown amber pour with quick head. Booze chocolate aromas...some fruit notes.
taste is where this brew shines...chocolate with lots of wood and fruit and a hint of funk. Its not nearly as acidic as most haand...but its got a funk for sure. Lots of leathery chocolate...
really super smooth mouthful..not even realizing its 7%.
overall a really nice brew.
yes its miles away from Bois and Kuhnhenn but its still a great brew
