3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, very dark amber coloured with medium stable white head. Nice lacing beer. Strange style, is this ’brown ale’ ? I don’t know. Smell some industrial cheap, candy sugar, passion fruit. Taste: very fruity, some malty notes and nice hops. A bit heavy beer, may be a bit unbalanced but very special one and one of the nicest bottles ever!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright red-amber beer with a small beige head; medium carbonation. Very caramelly nose, with notes of parsley; bit of human sweat, coloured malts. Good dark malts returning in the mouth, and bitterish-bready(crust), without burnt, nor overly sweet notes - good balance. Dry hopping obviously worked, without conferring unwanted IPA-touches. Warming up, some less flavoursome oxydized malt notes. Medium bodied, slick, even refreshing despite the caramel overtones. Another one that is better than the sum of its parts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very hazy red-amber with a largeish, tanned head with some lace. Toffee-caramely aroma with strawberries and some flowery hops. Toffeeish, somewhat acidic and mildly ashy-dryish flavor. Medium-bodied, quite foamy-carbonated palate. Not very clean or balanced, although decently drinkable. Label says it’s dry-hopped, but can’t find much hops here.
