Pours a very dark umber colour, with beige head that's nice and dense but sunk to a modest film. Lace is clingy and dense but not majorly sticky. Looks good. Looks very good.
Smell is an odd one. Intense sweetness with bits of spice. Vegemite and sultana sweetness combine with black pepper, orange peel, molasses and, at the back, a wild raspberry lactic tartness. Very intriguing, and plenty to like.
Taste is really quite bizarre, but, again, lots to like. Starts quite dark with plummy and raisiny character, develops quite a fresh, fruity tartness midway. More sultanas and a touch of grapefruit and fig jam on the mid. Hint of spontaneous fermentation on the back, but also just a yeast extract stickiness and some mild plum fruit. Dark and mysterious, fruity palate, similar to a bad Oud Bruin, only better, with more complexity and more to like.
Bit foamy and dry in the mouth, feels maybe both over-attenuated and over-carbonated.
An off-beat, quirky brew, but very charismatic. If this beer approached you at a party, you'd be worried it might suddenly pull you into the bushes and rape you with a banana, but at the same time you'd be secretly wishing it would, too.

Served to me blind by @LaitueGonflable.
Deep, but relatively light-bodied dark brown colour, with a firm and full head of fine mocha foam. Lacing is full and persistent. Body is, as I said, relatively light, meaning the colour and the depth both give a sense that it's not going to be really as dark as you think. Not a bad look all up.
Nose is undeniably odd. Very sweet, with twinges of fresh, bright or fruity aromatics. Initially, I said "sultanas and dish detergent". It has a sweet, dark fruit, but also a pungent and redolent citric character to it. It's an odd mix. As it warms, deeper and fuller characters of oak, vanilla and even some dark chocolate come through. But there's always that odd fruity lightness about it that makes it very odd indeed. If nothing else it's extremely interesting.
Taste is spicy and dark, but with a lightness that stops it from getting too sweet or too acrid. Light berry characters on the front, before the lightly roasted grainy character comes through to have a crack at cleaning up. Very light finish, giving it an almost pilsner or lambic crispness on the back. It's so weird, but that makes it so unique, and I'm a sucker for a unique beer.
Wow. What a crazy brew. The only thing that I compare it to is the Huvila Arctic Circle Ale black Sahti, with its mild acidity, crazy fruit characters and very off-centre and very unique characters. I love it.
