3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem and last of the night - Cloudy murky brown body, with a thin off white head and some broken lace. The aroma is rich cherries, lots of dark cake fruits. The flavour is very sweet with a rich creamy caramel toffee marzipan taste. Great syrupy mouthfeel, but not one I could finish in a rush when we were asked to leave for closing time.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Beilen.
Brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet toffee and figs. Taste is overwhelming sweet. Figs dominate all with a cloying sweetness just behind that. Normally Jopen is a standard for quality but this one is a sticky mess in my opinion.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Smells and tastes like apple syrup (rinse appelstroop). Looks like coffee with to much watter (doesn’t look tasty). Tastes of cofee, dried fruit, candy sugar and dried orange. Syrupy. Good for what it is, but not my thing...

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle @ Papsø. Pours murky and very chunky with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet and perfumed with all sorts licorice, labre larver (butter), artificial, dark overripe fruit and spice. Taste is cloyingly sweet. Body is near medium, texture is thin and almost sticky, carbonation is moderate. There’s no way I’d ever drink a glass of this.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy, nutty brown with a beige head. Very odd aroma - sort of licorice all sorts, but then again not really. Rich, sweet body, extremely sweet, extremely cloying, coconutish and spicy. Doesn’t remind me of figs at all. No hops or balance. The other beers in this series were actually good, but this is hardly drinkable. 080614
