3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep copper more to reddish with beige to yellow top, medium, good spoty lacing. Aroma - mostly caramel malty, dark berries yeasty, raisins, far away milky cocoa, a bit darker malt, like it on nose a lot. Reminds more old or scotch ale :)
Taste - minimal to light sweet, minimal bitter, more from darker malt. Palate - pleasantly light astringent on tongue, medium plus bodied, oily-sticky texture, average carbo, finish is medium mild bitter, afrettaste - light sweet. Very good one. I like those caramely, berries-yeasty stong maturation flavour ales, and this is one. Would put in category "Scotch ale".

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
First days of May and although there is sunshine during the day, the nights are still cold here in the Netherlands, so why not a winter beer..Bottle, 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. BB 10/13. ABV 10%
Unfortunately I saw the sediment too late, so I poured most of it into the glass. The result was a very deep and hazy amber brown coloured beer, with big chunks floating in the body. Two fingers of soapy, light beige head with quite good retention. Medium lacinf left on the glass.
Aroma is mostly of sweet milk chocolate, with discreet alcohol notes, that are making the aroma quite pleasant and appealing.
Taste of roasted malts, quite sweet at first, with lots of chocolate, obvious alcohol, some little vanilla too. Moderate bitterness on the aftertaste, very good.
Medium thick body, carbonation above average, but not annoying at all. Quite dry palate.
Overall, another great beer from Jopen.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bardzo smaczne. mocny dziesiecio procentowy alkohol sprytnie ukryty, ale mimo to finisz rozgrzewajacy. Intensywny aromat amerykanskiego chmielu. Smak slodko przyprawowy, korzenny pyszny. Piana spora i trwala kolor ciemno bordowy z niewielkim zamgleniem pochodzacym od drozdzy znajdujacych sie w niewielkich ilosciach w butelce.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl, part of Dutch sampler from bierenzo - Very aromatic and tasty caramel and dark fruits Am strong ale with a great fresh hop offset and no exaggerated sweetness. Lovely velvet mouthfeel and subtle fruity yeast. Truly a seasonal winter warmer, due to the noticeable and unfortunately slightly distracting 10% ABV-fumes - glad spring hasn’t yet set in at the beginning of April this year.
