Traditionally served in a pint glass, the concoction is a unique blend that marries the malty depth of the dark beer with the aromatic complexity of gin. This drink is typically consumed cold and offers a rather unconventional mix of ingredients that might not cater to everyone's taste, hence its potential for varied reactions among those who try it.
