St. Sebastiaan Dark

Somewhat disappointed by this. Novelty of the “ceramic” appearance “bottle” is lost quickly, although I do like the flip top potential of keeping the beer in the fridge for a couple of hours after it has been opened.

Very malty, sweet nose, almost reminiscent of a pretty good doppelbock. However that’s where the good stuff ended.

Drab, brown pour with a large amount of (presumabley) yeast floaties. Alcoholic warmth seems very high for such a relatively low ABV. Taste has the malts with little hop character, but they are not the warm toasted malts that the nose suggests, rather a sugary sweet then sucrose solution.

Biggest disappointment was the mouthfeel. Very, very thin and watery.

Overall a big disappointment. Not my favorite style either and tried to take that into account, but nonetheless not one I’ll be back to anytime soon.
