2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cL bottle. Pours unfiltered brown with a semi crisp and creamy head, quickly disappearing leaving a fatty lacing. Aroma is spicy and whiskey like alcoholic with good portion of malt. Flavour is a harsh blend between cane sugar and malt in a very dark mix. Very dry and bitter finis with distinct spicy notes. Very strong in all its elements and rather unbalanced.

A Mes rate:
33cl bottle from Lowlander 2. Another one courtesy of Anthony from Du Boqc, cheers sir! Sadly this went straight back to the bar. Very badly oxidised as De Graal beers are way too often in my experience. Nose and flavour were dominated by rusty iron. Dark brown colour with a bubbly and uncontrolable head. Malty aroma with fruit and spice. Same in the flavour but a little sweeter. God it was awful.
