2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle 37.5cl @STOOM brewpub, tht 12/17
Appearance is maple syrup/sherry-ish. No head, no lacing, no carbo. Syrup!
Aroma has pickles, some cloves, vinegar, appelstroop, cat food, persian carpet. Nice complexity, weird balance, still enjoyable. Don’t ask me why. Loads of sherry/applewine hints.
Taste is more apples, sherry, cherries. Some raisins, some cola-herbalness, old cheese, barn, cellar.
Mouthfeel is really thick and syrup with a soft sour finish. Vinegary port stuff. Pretty sweet. Loads of cheesy funk.

Almost headless. Huge aroma. What is that... Sour cherries? Red wine vinegar? Jammy, blueberries, funk, alcohol. Lots here. Heavy stuff, very fulfilling. (Corked bottle from the brewery)
