4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Deep black body with creamy tan head. Apple juice, maple syrup, fennel, cloves, dark caramel, some smoke, honey cereal and rye bread. Lots going on and lots of good stuff, luckily. Super rich taste, light burned at first, with a sweet, raisin-y sweetness in the middle and a long, developed aftertaste. Good amount of warming alcohol and an oily texture that leaves a film of goodness. This can totally compete with the classic Belgians with their long history. The well-carbonated palate and velvety, fruity sweetness make this a world class brew. Clearly a knowledgeable and focused brewer at work. There, a Malus Pater review without mentioning the church once. Ah... damn. (50cl bottle, 7,20 EUR, unfortunately) (Rating re-indexed)

Dette er snop, sier dr Melberg denne fine maikvelden på Mandag i annen. Og den er sannelig lett å helle innpå, farlig lett for omdreiningshastigheten. Vi skåler for en tam dag på jobben i morgen!
