2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of Vaiz. Probably an infected bottle, hence the low score. Pours a pitch black beer with a small off white head. Aroma is rather sour, malty and has some caramel touches. Flavor however, has a lot of infectious sourness going on. Not really worth a full rating, since it’s probably infected. Still, potential is there.

Bottle at Mr Hangover’s 2014 Nieuwjaarsborrel, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a round light tan head. The aroma is band aid acid sour... almost certainly infected. The flavour is medium bitter light sweet light sour with a light sour acidic alcoholic palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Such a shame the bugs got in there.
