Well, you know when you pay too much for a beer and expect it worths it? It didn’t happen to me. Too expectation... Aroma: is lovely sweet, caramel, toffee and roasted malts. Later I realised that this was the best this brew offered me. It was poured down into a good wine glass. I have not got a sniffer. Dark amber-brown color. It hardly kept the head. Lots of white yeast points in there. The taste is caramel, some complexity I did not get it. Medium body. Yes, it tastes sweet at the outset and then finishes with a very strange super-astringent-bitter-hoppy explosion that keeps stucked on the back of your mouth (for too long). Well, it just seems incoherent for me. It is not pleasant, or soft, or smoothy. It’s agressive and rough. Probably the problem was my own expectation.

10/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from... Kees maybe? Don’t remember, I’ve had it in my beer fridge like forever. Drank @ home - BB: XII/2013 (2014-360) If I got it from Kees, then thanks a lot for the bottle! If not, then just thanks for making such an awesome beer(s)!

Clear red purple beer, small irregular beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, bubble gum, peach candy, some caramel, sugary, sweet, red lace candy, strawberry jam. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of strawberry, other red fruits jam, some overripe banana, pretty sweet, caramel, some citrus, soft bitter touch. Aftertaste: very fruity, raspberry and cherry candy, bitter hops, some caramel, sugary, red lace candy. Lovely!

Bottle at Deans impromptu Monday night tasting. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is rich sweet caramel treacle toffee. The flavour is strong sweet with a slightly watery light aspirin bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not what I expected at all, but a great beer!
