2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is a strange combination of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee and sour dark fruit with a bit of a sickly quality. Much more sourness comes out in the flavour with the over aspects subdued in the background and some light bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle 33 cl from Willems - Grobbendonk (B). Beer practically black, tan head. Roasted aromas, chocolate, spices, tobacco, leather and old barrel. Fruity taste, a bit sour, roasted malt, grassy and earthy hops. There are notes of cold coffee, black berries, sourish and lactic. A lot of taste without the bludgeon of alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a very dark brown body under a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has some strange radish or asparagus hints, but is mostly on the dark side, with roasted malts, chocolate, and a touch of vinegar and licorice. The flavor is sourish, with roasted malts, some chocolate, vinegar and licorice. Roasted and lightly sour finish. Medium body fullness. Well, a nice beer, but with some aromas and flavors not so nice. Don’t think I could drink much of it. 110610

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a very small, beige head. Aroma of licorice, and distinctively chocolatey malt. Flavor is sour-malty and lightly roasty, with stale coffee and way less chocolate than the aroma suggests. Light to medium body with low CO2. Has a vinous character, and not too watery body - but unfortunately doesn’t work that well as a whole. This is the opposite of Freaky in terms of the CO2 level. 4254
