3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Menno - thx. Beautiful amber with a nice off white head. Spicy aroma with notes of cloves, apricot and marcipan. Flavour has an initial caramel and fruit sweetness which is quickly substituted by a solid, dry bitterness that comes wrapped in an alcoholic full body. This beer delivers on multiple levels, but doesn’t exceed it’s own limitations within the style. I could drink this often, but the aroma would probably keep me from it, as cloves remind me of some bad experiences with Becherovka.
