3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Starts strong, fine spicy, some sourish notes. Nice caramel notes in the background, but the finish is dominated by dry alcoholic notes. Starts better than it ends.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 30/XII/12 - 33cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 8/IV/12 (2012-1415) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!
Clear deep orange to amber beer, huge fizzy off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very smelly, swimming pool, citrus, peppermint, herbal. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bitter start, herbal hops, pretty spicy, sourish, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: very bitter, cardboard, bit spicy, dry, hint of sugar. Tastes like the bottle is 5 years old, but it’s only 8 months old!
