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 it’s still noticeable. Some red fruity sweet thing here, a dark malty flavor that I really like. It’s really integrated and hard to tear apart. A fine one! 08.06.2013
