medium-dark brown body, lightly hazed, mostly white head. very faint nose of washed out toasted grains and mild dry cocoa powder with a small touch of caramelized sugar / toffee. lightly doughy with low carbonation leaves the body and texture a bit watery, and at times it seems flavorless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from trade with the Grand Old Lady, Maria. A clear, dark golden body is topped by a nice, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma feels metallic at first, soon overpowered by grassy, slightly spicy hops. Some maltyness too. It is quite dry in the mouth, although a bit more sweet than I would like it. Nice bitterness, and some almost caramel tasting maltyness. Balancing bitterness in the end. A bit sweet this one, but nice and tasteful anyway. 110601
