Looks a light rusty amber with a nice but dissipating head. Rich sweet aroma’s of banana and bittersweet orange with hints of candy caramel and sweet liquorice. Very nice dark beer with a rich carbonisation, really nice in the mouth.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque red brown. Smells of malt, spices, only slightly fruity. Tastes very spicy, the coriander is quite overwhelming, the oranges seem to be an afterthought. It’s dry and slightly sour, and leaves a spicy, dry aftertaste. Not too bad for an 8.5%, but I expected better.
