4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle] Pours deep brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma is very nice--brown sugar, raisin, prune, and big nuttiness. Quite a bit of bitterness in the taste, nuttiness again (hazelnut), toasted malt, some underlying juicy grapefruit, and another fruit I can’t peg. I like it. Good mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, this is an outstanding amber, and all around a very enjoyable beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
D’ampolla. Color marró clar, escuma també. Aroma de llůpol, tocs de regalčssia i fins i tot alguns tocs torrats. El sabor és amarg, lleugerament picant. Bona cervesa perň podria ser millor.
