Bottle poured into a Pilsner glass

Deep mahogany brown with some carbonation. Taupe foam lid and good lacings

Aroma of grassy hops, pine, raisins and figs

Roasted malts on the first sip in the middle of the tongue. Slight bitterness on the side of the tongue.

Slight lingering bitter aftertaste. No sudsing

I like it. Good, different , well balanced
