Muddy brown colored brew with ample carbonation that forms a khaki head. Visually this seems to be the only sucre variant that has retaining power to the head.

The smell is quite intense with spicy woody character almost like burning incense. Lots of oaky depth, tangy alcohol and dark fruity qualities like raison and plum. Throughout it maintains a spiced oak profile unlike any of the other treatments and quite frankly its harsh.

The taste is so oaky its spicy like smoking incense/cedar. Some tangy alcohol is present with a nod in the direction of raison before getting herbal and fruity. As far as the sucre variants go, this is definitively the driest and most harsh/bitter/tannic.

This is full bodied with modest carbonation. This is easily a standout in the series and not in a good way. Im trying to find something positive to say but christ this is easily the worst/least enjoyable of all 9 treatments.

Woody. Slight acidic twang. Reminiscent of young Fred from the Wood.
