3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle from Rudat, best before 28/11/2015. Clear, dark red with a small, fluffy, slowly diminishing, tan with a reddish touch head. Pleasant, malty aroma of redcurrant, raspberry, caramel and gentle hints of chocolate. Sweetish taste of redcurrant, raspberry and caramel, followed by a weird, light bitter and slightly metallic finish. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Pleasant, but not fantastic. Easily drinkable despite the empty, metallic finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours light chestnut with medium off-white head. Very dirty aroma with soil, compost and some sweetish, lightly roasted malts. Light bodied palate, slightly spicy and herbal. Short finish with low bitterness. Does not hit the mark for me, way below average.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a faint berry sweetness, with caramel, a slightly burnt bread quality and undertones of earth and wax that strengthen later. It pours clear with a dark red-amber hue and a light tan, dense soap head that has a moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium waxy bitter with a medium light syrup sweetness. It’s a sticky beer with a lightly fizzy carbonation and a medium light, malt body that predominantly burnt in flavor with tones of caramel and bread crust, and a light hint of fig. The finish is bread crust with a burnt character. The aftertaste is a cloying, burnt waxy note.

500ml bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and raisins. The taste is similar, followed by a slighty bitter finish. The sweetness is a bit overdone really.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle. Average white frothy head not lasting. Hazy light amber colour with reddish hues.
Aroma is toasted, malty and hoppy with caramel and floral notes. Taste is fruity, malty , toasted with hoppy floral and bitter aftertaste. Medium high carbonation and medium body. Quite an interesting beer where the hop dominates the malty features.
