3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from De Hopduvel. // BBF 12/2014 (so this is good, cool!) // Dark furniture red amber, tanned head only on the sides. // Nose is sticky syrupy oxidized molasses, cough syrup, dark fruit, leaves, strong liquorish, fermenting red berries,… // Taste is varnish, oxidation, furniture, leaves, liquorish upfront, wood, light overripe dark fruits,… bit empty afterward, finish is mouldy & wet autumn leaves, bit off-putting,… // Bit light body. // Some rather strange flavours going on here like mould, lots of varnish etc. At this point all of those could be because of (very likely they are because of) the age / oxidation so there is that. Still not bad at all overall but it was very likely better fresh, people who are into oxidation / vintage beers. Still surprisingly nice even if nothing all like what I expected it to be.

Bottle (50cl). Slightly unclear, dark reddish brown colour. Finger-thick sticky offwhite head, some lacing. Aroma of malt, plums, figs, cookies, caramel. Full body, soft carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown with ruby highlights. Small off-white, almost tan head. No lacing. Smells bready with a roasty spiciness. Taste bready, malty. Thin with a bitterness in the back. Pretty quaffable beer. A little too carbonic. Lacking in many ways. Might be due to the age on it. Still drinkable though.
