2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. It wants out of the bottle this! Nothing extremely, but it clearly does not like parting with it’s cap. It pours a heavy cloudy deep dark amber body. It almost looks like you have added cream in this, and it has a massive fluffy kinda dirty off-white top. On the nose I get a soft cellary sourness. Some earthy potatoes with traces of malts. It’s not extreme, but present. Slightly above average on the carbonation with a thin oily mouthfeel. The taste is much the same as the aroma - just more present. Earthy potatoes, some caramel, something slightly acidic sour in the background and traces of rutabaga and yeast. A bit strange in many ways. 09.01.2012

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a dark slightly hazy orange body with a massive creamy off-white head. Aroma is sour-ish cellar must tones, red berries, biscuits and hints of...wool. Strange. Taste is earthy potato-like grass tones, mostly. Medium body and carbonation. A bit lifeless and one-dimensional, and clearly past consumption peak. Will re-rate if I have the chance.

Khoury’s bottle. I’m no steam beer expert but this was tasty. A nice blend of sweeter caramel malts and some bright, green hops. Lasting bitterness. Very well done.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark orange-brown color. Good head. This is pretty good. Grainy with a dry but light enough finish. I found this quite drinkable, even more so as you go along. One of the best JJ beers yet! Probably my favorite Steam beer truly.
