Bottle. Brown pour. Over ripe dark fruit, sour vinegar, infection, remains of malt sweetness. Terrible.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 0.5L bottle, shared by Bergen Ratebeer Crew @Club Gonzo’s. A deep brownish-amber colored beer, topped by a low coarse blond head. Heavy caramel-sugary aroma with a sweet fruit-cocktail scent. Also a whiff of phenols and higher alcohols. Taste has a substantial fruit-sweetness, along with toffee and molasses tones. Sparsely hopped. Juicy mouthfeel. Feels full in the mouth, due the big amount of residual sugars. Alcohol warmth and a lingering sweet fruity/caramelly ending. Did easily fill my sweet tooth, and more.
