nother outstanding gruit from Earth Eagle.

This beer pours dark black with a decent head and great carbonation.

Smells a bit boozy from the apple brandy barrels that they age it in.

The taste messes with your head. From a beer that black, you automatically a ton of roasty flavors, but there are none to be found up front... but they hit you at the end. The darkness mainly comes from the Chaga that they use (a parasitic fungus that grows in cold climates on birch trees). The taste is earthy, a bit boozy and woody from the brandy barrel, and then a bit of spice hits you at the end from the nutmeg, and a touch of sweetness from what I assume was the maple sap that they brewed the beer with.

A wonderful and unique offering. I love it when a brewery dares to do something this different.
