3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours murky brown with an off white head. Aroma of maple syrup, acetone, marzipan, booze, caramel, roasted malts and wood. Flavour virtually as expected from the aroma. It is softly carbonated yet a smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied, sweet, but a bit too boozy for my taste right now.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une bonne odeur de banane. Une belle mousse qui s’estombe rapidement. Un goût de velour, du stock et d’alcool, avec un peu d’amertume.
