Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Näyttää olevan nykyään 8.5%, eikä 9%, kuten Oppaassa vielä seisoo. Korkin avaamisen jälkeen olut suorastaan ryöppyää ulos ja pöydälle, mutta lasiin kaatamisen jälkeen vaahto laskee aika nopeasti kokonaan pois. Keskiruskea, kirkas olut. Tuoksu maltainen sekä makean luumuinen. Maku makean maltainen, jonkinverran alkoholinen, kevyesti tumman hedelmäinen, belgihiivainen ja pippurisen mausteinen. Melko kuiva ja suora olut keskitäyteläisellä suutuntumalla. Ei nouse missään nimessä parhaiden belgien tasolle ja on hieman tasapaksu, sekä turhan alkoholinen kokonaisuus.

WaddlingPlatypus (124) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
330ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Dark amber pour with a pale toffee head. Rich red berries and haylage are immediately apparent in the aroma, along with wholemeal bread. The flavour is a herbal riot, comprising predominantly of cloves, fennel, celeriac, and liquorice/sambuca. Very reminiscent of some apothecary’s brew, and very pleasant to drink.
