3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

with bubblegum, chocolate and alcohol notes. Dry-sweetish fruity
toffeeish bubblegum taste with soy sauce notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry herbal licorice and chocolate
aftertaste with soy sauce and fruity bubblegum notes. Decent,

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish brown beer with a very small head. Dried fruits like prunes and raisins on the nose, some alcohol and roasted malts as well. The alcohol barely detectable. The aroma has some bitterness and coffee hints to support the dried fruits and warming alcohol, it’s smooth, full-bodied and warming, finishing with a little too less flavor but sufficient warmth. A really nice one, but it lacks a bit on complexity. 110513
