2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. 2012 vintage. An unclear, dark amber beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. Nice lacings. The aroma is sugary and malty, with some dried fruits and canned tropical fruits. Some sourish hints and green grapes. It’s soft on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Medium body, semi-dry. Caramel maltyness, dark sugar, dried fruits and some resiny bitterness in the flavor. Some sourish hints too. Seems to be slightly off this one. Not that it matters, it’s quite uninteresting anyway. 141011

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Pleasant old nutty roasty aroma, but not so big. Dry nutty palate. English estery almondy componts come out in the aroma and retronasals later. Soft palate, nice carbonation. High drinkability for the strength, but the very dry attenuation makes it drying.
