3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 10/2017. Pours dark brown witha tan head. Mild aroma with some sweetish notes and something pretty sharp, some raisins perhaps also. Sweet dark syrup and herbal notes in taste at first. Sweet dark syrup in finish. Pretty neutral beer with no offencive things really. A bit of the alcohol comes through in the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weinartig in der Nase, schokoladig, malz, Toffee, süß. Beginnt süß und schokolaadig. Mittelteil fruchtig, kompakt, Malz, Schokolade. Abgang fruchtig, verdichtet, Toffee, zunächst nur leicht alkoholisch, später wärmend. Schweres Bier, für meinen Geschmack eher einseitig, zu wenig Tiefe.

Pours cloudy dark brown with a thin quickly receding off-white head. Notes of bubble gum, raisin, toffee. Full bodied with lush carbonation. I think this would have been better fresher.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramelized brown sugar, dark fruits, and burnt malts. Flavour is very similar, with burnt caramel malts, caramelized brown sugar and dried dark fruits. Finishes on notes of brown sugar and burnt caramel malts. Quite full-bodied and well-balanced. Great stuff.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex toasted sweet malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex solid beer.

Bottle. Pours a brown color with a tan head. Aroma of raisin/grape with malts. Medium bodied, a little thinner than expected. A bit heavy on the alcohol flavor as well. Still good though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Rootz, Den Haag. An almost black pour with a reddish hue and a thin tan head with lots of broken lace. The aroma is rich yeasty and with a little spicy fruitiness. The flavour is rich, bitter yeasty with a big liquorice palate which lingers into the aftertaste. A super tasting beer, but given the ABV, not one for a session.
