3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

12 oz. bottle, pours reddish dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruits, toasted nut and caramel malt. Flavour of sweet dried fruits, some off-balanced sour notes, toasted malt and light hops. Nothing too inspiring.

Bottle at -believe it or not- a tabletennisbar. Weird! Brownish color, off-white to beige head. And then I got totally distracted because the two girls I was talking to were that nice that I totally forgot about the beer. Wasn’t too bad, but not very interesting either. Well this is worthless as a rating but while drinking the beer I had a nice chat with those girls so my priorities weren’t with rating this beer..
