3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (50 cl) from Bierkompass.de. I love the label of this beer. Otherwise, it was not that exciting. Weak belgian character, some malitiness with a roasted touch. Dry with boring salty bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5L bottle brought home from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of latte head, quickly shrinking to a ring of tiny bubbles. Body is the darkest brown with a reddish hue. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked roasted nuts. Feels quite unrefined and solventy on the nose, actually. Hints of brown sugar and peppery dark malts. Taste is sweet malty, bordering on harsh. Moderately roasted with a sourish tone. Notes of wood and licorice. Alcohol is noticable. Mid-bodied. Sharp, light astringent mouthfeel. Sourish and peppery malt finish. Goes well down, but a bit edgy and unrefined. Will probably improve with cellaring.
