3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber-brown near-clear body with vague orange tones, huge but diminishing off white head, not much lacings. Aroma; dark malts, notes of liquorice, ripe banana, coriander, coffee, blackcurrant, bread and flowers. Taste; caramel malts, grassy hops, coriander, notes of ripe banana, wild berries, chocolate, bread. Easy and normal on palate. Somewhat creamy finish with those notes of chocolate and brown bread. Sweetish after-dinner beer. Quite tasty, I must admit :) .

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5L bottle. Pours hazy brown with a frothy tan head. Really nice aromas: bready malt, molasses, toasty nut, dough. (deconconction mash?). Mild sweetness at beginning with cereal grain and hints of banana. Kind of nothing in the middle, then finishes with more banana, yeast, and a mild, herby bitterness. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel. OVerall, nice aromas, tasty enough, but not much standing out.
