Pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of malts, unfermented sugars, fruit and alcohol. The taste starts off with a bit of dark fruits, turning nutty, wheaty and a bit strong. The beer is damn smooth, more than likely from the oat additions in brewing. Brewed with rye, sage, caraway, juniper and chestnuts, they meld together to form a unique flavor but everything is so balanced it is almost non-distinct. The beer is full bodied but very smooth on the palate. Soft, prickly carbonation makes for a smooth drink (the beer poured from the tap just a bit heady). Overall, this would certainly be considered a success, and apparently this was a collaboration between Nøgne Ø, Stone and Jolly Pumpkin. Its not a sour, thats for sure, sorry Jolly Pumpkin fans. It is, however, a very good beer!
