50cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red color with a full sized off-white to lightly beige head that leaves good lacing and lasts for quite a while. Donít get much aroma. Taste is nice though: malts, slightly butter, dark fruits, leaves, caramel and a slight touch of wood. Medium body, just about medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 50 cl. Ruby in color with a creamy tan head. Syrup, malty and nutty in aroma. Very dry. Malty, earthy notes and some hints of sweet toffee in flavor. Actually this beer is nice despite being quite dry, but this means at the same time it isnít too sweet, which is a good thing.
