2012 and before

The maltfeatures herein really does justice to this beer, at the same time as there is a sharpness to it. Eventhough I’d caught a cold at the time of consumption, one can tell there’s enormously fruity layers here and hints of liqurice/Anis. The carbonization helps providing a fresh sense. In addition, the smokearoma is present, even halfway through the mouthful.

At first, very complex- presenting a wide fruity range, followed by an evolving longlasting bitterness- which continously lies underneath, like embers fire.
