2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, medium sample. Clear copper color, short head. Aroma of sweet caramel, hint of chocolat, sugar, wort. Sugary sweet taste, bit caramel. It tastes like a Dutch Oud Bruin, way too sweet. Like to obtain this alcohol percentage, they brewed a regular brown beer, pasteurized it. Then added a dose of unfermented wort to lower alcohol and add ’body’ aka sugary sweetness. Quite horrible.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one seems to be a mixture of awful and great. One hand side tells you that the sweetness within is great, the other says it is a crime. If you like it sweet, very sweet - then this beers hits. Beside its sweetness there are some aromas of raisin and caramel. Tough one if you are not into it. I am still not sure about it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep dark brown colour with creamy, steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt. Taste of sweetened coffee, brown sugar, caramel and sweet brown Alpine bread. Not that easy to drink, due to its sweet- and stickiness it rather goes down very bad.
