Pours a clear, deep mahogany coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smells of toasted, bready, caramel malt and herbal, spicy hops, with a hint of dark fruit. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by toasted, grainy, caramel malt and herbal, almost spicy hops, with notes of toffee, light chocolate and dark fruit: fig, dates. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some dark fruits lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. This has a great balance of hops and malts as well as sweet and bitter notes going for it, with lightly estery fruit and spice notes that almost bring to mind a Belgian Dubbel. An interesting and somewhat complex brew that is rather enjoyable.

L- Deep chestnut brown, clear, pours with fat 2cm off-white head
S- Somewhat sour on the front, then smokey toasty caramels
T- Woof. Complex at the start and middle, then zing - the goods get magically delivered 5 seconds in, when everything comes together. Same happens on the 2nd mouthful.
M- A rich and very deep ale.
O- Quite the dazzler, from the beer, to the Goblin on the jazzy lable (for a real ale!) with the glint in his eye.

Bottle with an expiration date of 16 June 2019. look was brownish red with a tan capped head leaving spotted lacing behind. Smell was of caramel apples yeasty esters and biscuit malt. Taste is subtle tartness with a big malt backbone and dark fruits. the feel was very smooth and full. Overall well done for the style.

I was about to forsake all beers after a two years beer spree when I tasted this beer. it was an epiphany, after each seep I would say to myself, "what a good beer!!"... I beseeched the Universe to have the people make beers like that to make this life worth living. I tasted this beer on the Winter Solstice when I was very down after drinking a lot, and one seep transformed my mood from depression into ecstasy, I don't care what everybody else says ..This is the best Beer in this part of the Universe!
To satisfy the bots: looks: average smell: divine taste: extactic feel: cold velvety overall: lifesaving

From elcervecero. In Ikea's pint glass. Watching Game of Thrones 7x01 + playing Pillars of Eternity. Caramel and even children bubblegum in a good body and great feeling thanks to a well adjusted noble hops bitterness. I want another

From a 500ml bottle served at 11 degrees Celsius into a British pint glass. The beer warmed up to room temperature during consumption. Best before date: 20.11.2017

Look: The beer pours a clear reddish-brown with 4cm of dense, tan head that settles into a craggy cap within three minutes. Good lacing.

Smell: Quite mild and balancing towards sweet. Nutty and toasty with faint caramel and fruity esters (dried fruit). A touch of noble hop character. Some alcohol on the nose as the beer warms to room temperature. Pretty nice if not that complex.

Taste: Moderate intensity and just a hair on the sweet side. It follows the aroma perfectly. Nutty and toasty notes again. Faint caramel with fruity esters. A notch better than the aroma sets it out to be. The finish is medium in length and intensity with a sweet-ish balance and a slight mineral note.

Feel: Medium body with mild carbonation. Creamy and very smooth with a faint alcohol warmth.

Overall: An overall malty brew with great balance and drinkability. Well-within the style. I'll be honest in saying it's not that interesting and you're not really missing out much by not trying it. However, it's still a decent brew and I'd have it again if offered.
