This reminds me of The Fillings Are Mutual (Mortalis x Other Half collab) but less sweet. Actually tastes like concentrated ribena.Earned the What Gose Round (Level 4) badge! Earned the Swedish Brews (Level 3) badge!
Rather a lot of raspberry jam here, on a tasty dark malty base that’s a little leathery and not too heavy. A bit of a farmy funk here which I’m not sure how to place… Is that from the port barrels?
The nose is quite malt and on the dry side. The palate has sweet apple juice, vanilla, and a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. This is tasty! A bit of a sticky finish in the corner of the mouth but not cloying or oversweet.Earned the Dessert Time! (Level 45) badge!
Never heard of this brewery from HK but love a Bock, so… Pours beautiful: darkish brown body, off-white head that lasts. There’s a really unfortunate sour note suggesting infection, and it is about to spoil this bottle for me.Earned the I'll Be Bock (Level 23) badge!
Big coffee on the nose, both roasty and beany with hints of cream, all of this backburnering the scotch ale malty base. Nevertheless, it works. It’s coffee first here, and the wee heavy is lost, but it’s a nice beer.
