2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 1/2015. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown with a finger of offwhite to tan foamy head that crackles away leaving a soapy film. Active carbonation. Nicely aromatic: prune and yeast esters. Taste is rather on the watery side, though there is sweetish plum skin and maple. Not really any bitterness -- just watery and a little fruity sweet. Body is light to medium, carbonation is lively. Yeast goo at base of bottle completely changes the color of the beer when poured in to a dark orange/light brown, with lots of white dots at the bottom of the glass. Bottom line: at 5.5% is unfair to expect a bold beer, and indeed this is a pretty mellow, unimpressive brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours deep reddish brown with no head at all (like flat cola). Aroma (when cold):roast and malt, molasses, dark fruit, a bit of toast. I let this warm from 5C to about 12. Aroma (Warm): More roast, to the point of burnt, some rotten egg, and a lot less of everything else. Taste of malt, roast, alcohol, yeast. Medium body, slight over-carbonation, medium finish. Drinkable, but just barely.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Bottle, almost no head, light brown colour wiht lots of dark red hues, aroma of wood, dark fruits and prunes with some vinous notes in the back, flavour of roasted malt and cola with some soapy notes, pleasant fruity sweetness, light bitterness and just a touch of sourness. The aroma promises quite a lot, the flavour doesn’t exactly deliver, but still quite drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Deep reddish brown color with small beige head. Aroma of caramelly malt, hints of floral hops and a bit of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with caramel and honey, toasty notes, some fruitiness, grainy hints and a slightly finish, still with somewhat sugary sweetness and some slightly spicy hints in the background. Medium-bodied, a bit sticky. The sweetness is somewhat unpleasant and even the bitterness has something weird about it. Kinda drinkable but not enjoyable.
