Second in Bink tasting series. Pretty ruby-brown color. Sweetish and a bit too syrupy for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep cloudy brown with creamy tan head. Strong pear notes in the aroma, honey, floral notes, belgian yeast and a little acetone. The taste is caramel, honey, stewed pear, dark rye bread, also with a little unpleasant acetone which detracts from the dry finish. Light-med bodied but still sticky. Not bad but could really do without the chemical nail polish remover in yhe aroma and finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very malt-sweet schwarz-like beer with a clearly high alcohol content. The bi-taste of fruit is not very successful in my book.
