2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark red with a solid, tanned head. Heavy on the caramel in the aroma with some faint coffee. Malty sweet, but weak, flavor with mostly caramel, but some coffee as well. A bit of a watery experience.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
from old notes Fluffy white cream over a medium brown hue with red highlighting. Richly nutty and toasted with thick malted sugar; instant coffee and spruce on the side. Mildly sweet malts --light on the darker flavours-- with a gently raspy bitterness and tinge of cola. Slick and light bodied; carbonation scrubs.
Easy going and lighter than the colour and aroma belies.
50 cl bottle, best before 16 April 2009.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body, white head. Little redish body. Very sweet and buttery aroma with some blanced noble hops. Flavour has also little metallic feeling. Slightly watery, but ok anyway. Surprisingly good beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It’s dark mahogany-red with a huge, creamy head. Both aroma and the sweet flavour has notes of dark syrup, malt, caramel and rye-bread. The finish is slightly bitter with a harsh hint. It’s very monotonous and quickly forgotten.
