3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle, pours dark brown, amber, with some haze and a lasting white head. Aroma is malty, rich caramel and dank biscuit textures, palate is rich with dried fruit and citrus. More a malty ale, which I enjoy. The maltiness is wel balanced with some hop bitterness. Nice

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown, light grey head. Very biscuity, cereal, butterscotch (in a good way), earthy hops, very nice! For the style great looks and excellent mouth feel. Quite dry and bitter, toasty yet never thick. Actually really drinkable! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish dark brown. Aroma is a lot of malty breadiness, strong rye, strong malt. Taste follows along the same lines with a lot of nuttiness in there as well. Medium and well carbonated. Excellent alt, even if I’m not familiar with the style, but still delicious.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle. Bottled on 24/03/13. From saveur-biere.com.
Clear copper colour with a small dirty grey head.
Malt, cookies, metal (in some good way... how is it possible?), play dough and mild sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is metal, malt, bitterness and sweetness.
There is quite a lot Altbier like features but there’s also too much hoppy bitterness and metal. Not bad. Could be a bit more fresh.

Mahogany brown body, white head. Aroma has cookie dough, some metal, fruits, white grapes. Flavour has flatness all over but some caramelly maltiness, crispy one comes through. Bit overhopped but nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle from Saveur-Biere
Bottled 03/2013 - Pours dark copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of malts, bready and sweet earthy notes, some yeast and stingy off-flavors too. Taste is smooth, malty and sweetish with some bready notes and crisp earthiness. Finish is bready, earthy and malty with some caramel and toffee. Decent, but feels a bit off. Could be better from a fresh bottle.
