3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle. BBE 2015 (the bottle had also some 2012 marking)
Pours dark ruby red colour with small head. Aroma of sweet malts, clove, grass, light caramel and sugar candy. Flavour of caramel, sweet malts, haym nuts, flour, sugar and ripe fruits. Something familiar to german beers on the nose, probably just the sweet malts.

Draft. Mahogony beer with a cream colored head. Sweet caramel aroma. Sugar and caramel/toffee flavor with light yeast. Medium bodied. Sugar lingers with caramel/toffee. Needed a glass of water after this one - way too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2015 on the label and xx.07.2012 on the neck
Aroma is sugary with syrup, spices, candi sugar, floury caramel and hints of roastiness. Also something German-like, maybe hops? Flavour is, surprisingly, rather sweet with brown and cane sugar. Also some belgian yeast, toffee and caramel. Something plastic-like occurs at the end of the glass. The sweetness doesn’t disturb as much as I expected. However, drinking the whole bottle by myself would be a mission impossible.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, white head. Aroma of smooth brown sugar, slightly toasted malts and toffee. Very smooth flavour of toasted malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, toffee, some hops. Full bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and a long, warming, smooth and sweet finish. Overall a very smooth beer with loads of sweetness, but it doesn’t disturb here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Not sure what to think of this one. Overpriced for sure, and one of my least favorite Evil Twin beers to date. Not as yeasty as most BSAs but doesn’t really fit anywhere else either. String and a little sweet, with a unique hard to peg flavor, presumably from the muscovado sugar. "

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500. Pours a fairly clear dark brown with a loose light tan head that doesn’t stick around. Big molasses and brown sugar nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Molasses and brown sugar mid palate. Not too much else happening, but tasty nevertheless--balanced, and not cloying. Good beer.
