3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Poured a murky dark brown with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is dry roasted malt, yeast and with the slightest hint of toffee. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet, with a smooth, rich, ripe fruit, malt, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. The initial taste wasn’t so good, but it grew on me. Not that much though... just a little. There are many greater beers that have come out of Kamperland!
