3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is hazy dark brown colored and pours a large and cream colored head, with a lot of carbonation. The aroma starts sweet with tones of caramel, overripe dark fruits and licorice to change in a bitterness with tones of spices and a nipt of alcohol. The taste is light sweet with tones of ripe fruits to change into a light bitterness with some tones of the spices. The finish is light bitter and some warming alcohol is noticable. Very decent brew from my country but a little expensive.

Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Dark fruits on the nose, some wood, maybe even some bourbon-y notes too, very nice aroma. Caramel malts and bread on the flavor, slight red wine notes, some molasses too. Quite interesting brew I must say. Good.
