2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Op het eerste gezicht veel koolzuur. Weinig geur. Nootjes geur.
Lichte alcohol branding in buik. Nootjes smaak. Alcohol brand niet in de mond maar wel in je buik. Niet lekker. Niks bijzonders.
Helaas kan ik niet meer noteren als deze rating. Dit komt doordat ik dit biertje te slecht vond om er meer over te kunnen noteren.

Bottle. Pours amber with a offwhite head. Aroma is peasoup hops. Flavor has peasoup hops and bitter malts. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth being the single good thing about this ale. After warming the sweetness is over the top with raisins, making the score a bit lower.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a dark amber-red colored beer with a small islandy and sidesticking head. Nice aroma, some sugary canned fruit mix, a little bit of butter, some oxidation also. It had a nice oily mouthfeel witch a small prickling carbonation level. It has some oxidation in the taste also, even if the bottle is not that old itís still noticeable. Some red fruity sweet thing here, a dark malty flavor that I really like. Itís really integrated and hard to tear apart. A fine one! 08.06.2013
