3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. 2005 vintage. It’s a more or less clear one, amber in color and with a dense, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has some caramel and oxidation, a touch of something herbal and peppery, and with prunes. The flavor has some caramel maltyness and a spiced touch, it’s dry on the palate, and with a nice bitterness. Full to medium body and a nice carbonation level. Long, dry, caramel finish with a good bitterness. A pretty nice one, easy drinkable too. 140301

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is amber in color with a tall, tan head. A light tartness of lemon on the nose followed by some pepper and spicy coriander notes. Caramel sweetness is also there along with some white grape. The flavor is a touch boozy with some strong grape flavor, a hint of spice, and rather intense caramel. Not as bad as some of the series, but not as good as others, either.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
LCRBM2: Coreander and lemon in the aroma. Very herbal, just a bit hopbitter and fruity flavor. Sometimes too much added herbs kill a beer. In this beer this is almost the case.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL thanks to Travlr. Pours a very ugly muddy brown with thicker tan head. Nice retention but ugly color. Nose is spicy with odd umami seaweed and celery salt. Weird nose. Taste is odd. Mildly metallic and bitter with lots of pumpernickel bread and celery. Lemon in the finish. Odd stuff. Convoluted.
