3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl. A small, beige head forms and disappeares in a few seconds, with a more or less clear, dark reddish brown body underneath. Lightly bretted nose with dried fruits, caramel, some roasted hints and coffee. A bit too well carbonated, full to medium body, quite dry. Some residual sugars though, making sure it’s not too dry. Raisins, caramel, some generic dried fruits, coffee hints and sweetness. Hmm, I don’t think the funk is intended, it’s sure delicious in this way though, really delicious. A fine beer indeed. 111112
