Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus and Niels. Clear dark amber color, average sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, sweetish, a hint of hops, but also a touch of something weird and slightly earthy. Decently drinkable, but nothing special.

65 cl bottle.
Pours clear mahogany color with a head. Very nutty and malty aroma, some caramel and ripe fruits too. Even more nuts on the flavor, lots of bread smooth and creamy malty palate, faint chocolate and coffee also. Very easy to drink, and very bready, maybe slightly too sweet for my taste.

Hazy red - amber beer, small bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light with a mild minerally crispness. Smooth malts, little dry cream, touches of dark toffee and molasses. Very mild dried fruits before the semi dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Tasty enough malt dominant number.
