2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, BB March 2012, small sample. Hazy brownish color, short head. Aroma of rosemary, some vinous note, bit port, caramel, toffee, hint of raisin. Sour taste, bit sweet. Besides the spices in the aroma, underneath is some wonderful aged barley-wine-like beer. However in taste, the sourness ruins it. Unbalanced and messy.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Hazy red - brownish color, virtually no head. Aroma is toothpaste and a horrible mix of herbs and spices. Taste is fortunately a bit better due to lightly sourish influences. The herbs and spices are way less prominent so it’s quite drinkable imo, as long as you don’t smell it.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, 0.375 l - BBE 06/13, at Pikkulintu, 20120709) The beer poured brown and quite cloudy. Its head was medium sized, sparse and white. Aroma had cough mixture, spices, malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spices, sweetness, rosemary, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was herbal, sweet and bitter. Even though I like rosemary a lot it didn’t work well in this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Zu Beginn sind starke Rosmarinnoten offensichtlich, die auch im weiteren Verlauf eine übergeordnete Rolle spielen. Geringe Säuerlichkeit. Diese ist aber eher untergeordnet und passt gut. Etwas herb. Vollmundig, trocken fruchtiges Finish. 8/12/12/14/11/13
