2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Jun. ’14. A 0.33 l bottle, I guess this one is Marko’s, thanks for sharing! It poured lightly hazy brown body with medium sized head. A bit stinky sourish infected aroma over some caramel in the background. Flavor was sour, too, not so much, lightly metallic, some dried fruits and caramel here, too. Medium bodied. This one seems to have some potential, but I really feel like it’s an infected batch. Ticking for rerate.

Can from a French supermarket. Pours deep chestnut with a big frothy cream head. Sweet and malty with some spicy citrus overtones. Maybe a little liquorice going on. A touch boozy, but OK.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from Carrefour and drunk at home. Clear dark brown thin beige head. Dark clear gold cola like colour. No real head. It’s a bit cola like all round to be honest. Not much hop, the malt is dark and dryish but it’s like drinking a strong alcoholic cola. Weird. With a touch of Bovril.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep amber/red body with an off white medium sized head. Sweet, malt-driven aroma, dark fruits, peppermint?! Tangy taste, raisins, dark malts, no finish, light soap. What on earth is this? A bad porter?! Doesn’t seem that infected and still feels off. Oh well.
