3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
28th May 2015: 330ml bottle poured into a La Chouffe badged stemmed tulip in Southern California where it is currently sunny and hot. The first beer of a random tasting session I am having with myself and no one else. Bit of a gusher, the brew flew out the bottle to give me a murky looking dark brown bodied beer with a lasting lightly tanned head. Malty and yeasty in nature, the aroma being malt led with a toffee and chocolate hints for the nose to find. The taste follows along in the same lines with the maltiness overpowering the hops and yeast flavours. Mild liquorice also within a mini-sour note or two in the mouth. I liked it: a good start to what will be a heavy session (I hope).

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dirty brown brew with fast fading head. Smells like a box of raisins. Taste is odd with hints at some licorice, sour bread, and something funky I can’t place. Not completely yuk but not a desired taste either. Maybe after 40 days of just this beer I’d acquire a taste for it.
