2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottles from RR Street and Blue Dog. Pours turbid orangy copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is malty, tannic, with hops and earthiness. Tastes rather dull, not much going on, with underlying malt, subdues hops, and a big earthiness that quite frankly gets hard to finish as it warms. This one was a major letdown, and no way in hell is this a BDG.

21/11 0.75 l bottle, great thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured hazy orange to copper body with bigger yellow head. Lot of yeast and some caramel malt made its strong aroma. Interestingly, flavor was quite weak, still yeasty, biscuit malty, with some subtle vanilla and spicy stuff notes. Thinner with shorter to medium finish that was slightly sweet. Very nice actually, but wouldn’t miss more body. BTW, now I see it’s BDG, of course, those always miss flavor!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at Řlfestival 2011. It’s a quite flat one, unclear and with an amber-orange body. The aroma is rather weak, some fruit and caramel entering the nose. It’s slightly milky in the flavor. Pale malts, fruityness - yellow apples, pear, peaches - and some bitterness, but not much. Medium body. Malty and fruity end. Overall, a quite dull beer, and it sort of goes in several directions at once, seemingly without a target. 110528
