KeefOz (1023) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2015
Tasted 17/3/15 at Ieper, Belgium. BB 22 10 16. Poured a semi-translucent red-brown colour with a one’s to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained poorly but laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma quite sweet of malt and dark fruits. Taste of not too sweet caramel; alcohol well hidden. Light body. Smooth, quite sweet and different to other brown beers but one at a time is enough.

Robe brune. Nez sur le malt, les épices, le caramel, le cacao, la banane. Bouche à l’attaque ample, belle mousse, rétro de café et de caramel, milieu de bouche équilibré et longue finale caramelisée. Une belle bière brune, épicée, mais qui garde de la fraîcheur.

APPEARANCE is nice, really clear dark brown wit red reflects and a thin foam stays after the large bubbles vanished in 1’. AROMA is caramel, vanilla, nuts bubblegum, butterscotch, woody, leather, dough and liquorish, overall sweet but fresh smell. TASTE is sweet but not too much. Some slight bitterness but nothing dry. Nothing complex but balanced anyway. PALATE is nicely balanced too, not really dense but medium body and medium creamy, average carbonation, that come trough the palate nicely. Palate is long with strong dark fruits and woody cherry coming to the end of it. Bottle from BK in Teku glass.

Gerbeer (2161) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a mahogany color with moderate head. Aromas of dry caramel, anise, and powdery resin. Flavors are similar with addition light notes of Christmas-like spices. A nice food pairing beer.

Zwaar. Donker, prima schuim. Lekker zwaar, karamel, veel smaak. Droplucht. Mooie fles maar dat boeit niet zoveel
