2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
33ml bottle from Alko in Hetta. Shared at XI Beer Session 18. Nov 2010. Dark amber body with beige head. Malty, prunes and dates to the nose. Hints of alcohol in both aroma and taste, but most of all the flavour is a mix of sweet olum, prunes and nutmeg. Still the aftertaste is soapy and oily. Disappointment!

Hazelnootbruin, nevelig. Waterig, Zoet. Suiker. Mouten. Niet veel body. Kunstmatig. Niet veel bijzonders.

At first sight a bit dull. But after a few minutes it’s getting better. Roast, bit smokey, sweet honey notes, dark brown. A fine belgian style brown beer. But i wouldn’t drink so much of it that i would bite a pillar

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Deep red brown colour on the body, very clear, with good activity in it. Head is beige in colour, two fingers tall, with good density and retention. A small part of it remains on the surface almostt for the whole drinking experience.
Aroma has caramel, some light nutty notes, red fruits.
Taste is of caramel, red fruits, light toffee, iron.
Medium body, lots of fizzy carbonation, actually reducing all the flavours quite a bit.
Overall: Nothing special, at moments even boring.
