3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Slightly hazy red brown color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a long time and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, some kind of fruityness, but also something weird. Tastes has it as well. Don’t know what it is but it’s quite annoying. Meh, not very good imo.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Non ho assaggiato la versione non barricata, ma questa mi è piaciuta. Forse un po’ pesante il gusto torbato, e i sapori non molto equilibrati tra loro, come le note amare-erbacee poco in armonia con l’anima maltata. Abbastanza ricca e godibile.
