3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from HopDuvel, BB 2015.
Brune légère, col beige fin.
Arôme levure et malt, léger fruité rouge laissant percer une fine note aigre-douce.
Palais, malté caramel avec un petit côté grillé/aigre assez agréable. Le tout rappelant une version jeune d’une veille brune en devenir. Reste sèche, grains et fini léger aigre gardant ce côté poussiéreux et un profile stout qui reste discret.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Like the name, but the comments don’t look promising. Dark brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a medium to small off white head. Very bizar aroma. Malts and veggies. almost going to skunky herby. Medium sweet and rather flat palate. Finish is slightly sour smokey and herby malty hinted with a flat wattery ending. Don’t know what to think of this one. OK has some promising notes but they don’t deliver. Very flat no character. Almost a flavoured watter, but not a good one. How the hell were they able to brew this one, and call it a stout?

6/12/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (markings on side of the label didn’t match the print) (2011-693)
Clear deep purple brown beer, small very light beige head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: weird unpleasant smell, rotten fruits, disinfectant, band-aid, rotten potatoes, just nasty. MF: low carbon, medium to full body. Taste: red sour berries up front, some weird grains or malts, little bit of mocha, citrus sour, weird chemical taste. Aftertaste: more sourness, red berries and band-aid glue, pretty nasty. Sorry, but a drain pour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small but vast light brown head on top of a dark brown beer with a amberish shine.
Smell is a medium but fine mix of roasted malts, coffee, roasted barley, a good smelling stout.
Taste roasted malts, darker ftuits, hint of medicine, some bitterness and light sweet even some light sour yeast ish touch. Taste and smell differs a bit, but not that much though. Pretty nice soft and light sourfruity...
Herby light medicine darker fruity aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium body and a light creamy texture.
Nice brew, bit fresh, light and sweetsour-a-like but nice overall..

Bottle @ home. Hazy brown color, off-white head. Smell sweet and something weird, almost smells like some perfume. Taste sweet, alcohol and also that same weirdness. Not good at all.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small, dense white head over dark chestnut beer. Scorched malts, liquorice, smelling bitter-sweet. Sourish flavour, utterly infected, resulting in a taste like herbs for paling in ’t groen (not a bad dish, but in a beer????) Light bodied, overattenuated probably thanks to the infection. God! A very serious overhaul of the installation is in order, IMO.
