2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Mugs BK 12 days after tapping. pours near black with no head. Very cherry acidic nose with cooling notes of pine and juniper. There is roastiness throughout. Flavor is very vinous and piney gin like before the oude bruin kicks in. The finish is too red wine like for me. Feel is dead and slick. Not into it after half a glass. Too many strong things happening that don’t work well together. Could be that it has been on for too long.
