2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl bottle @ home. I was prepared for a gusher, but that didn’t happen. There WAS an enormous beige head with long retention and good lacing. Deep brown color with a red hue. Aroma’s: dark malts, caramel, red fruit. More caramel retronasal, some sourness. Flavor is moderate sour, roasted, light caramel. High carbo. Finish is earthy bitter. Probably a light infection and the firm bitter finish is also out of place. Might have been OK when young....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer came gushing out like madness. Mild taste of choco malt, vanilla and some hop. Bit thin, I expected it to be more rich and tasty.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home, quite heavy gusher. Black pour, thick tan head with black specks. Probably bottled a little too much sediment. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, ash, burnt malts, earthy and some bready yeasy. Flavor is watery, bitter, roasted thin coffee mess. Not really interesting, and quite dusty with quite a lot of powdery mess still in the brew.
