Passable experiment. One of their five beers on the previous night, had at Grambinus. Black body wth a nice head. Sourish fancy brown beer with a dry finnish. Gets bitter and drier as it warms.A little boozy, spicy, not to the style really.Second growler 3 weeks later from Bob himself who brewed it. A black beer, malt and licorce, a little bitter.

Serving type: growler

Fresh growler, hand bottled from cask at the brewery. Thanks to Adil and Milos for sharing! Deep mahogany with ruby edges, pours a thin but large bubbled head. The nose has a lot of spice, mostly cardamon and cinnamon, with vanilla and rye notes. Sweet rye like flavours with lots of spice and an alcohol heft. Not all that balanced really. Sweet, quite alcoholic, with a fruity finish.

Serving type: growler
