2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Brussels Beer Cafe, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a big frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is malt, burnt treacle. The flavour is light to moderate bitter, light sweet with a light malt, toffee caramel palate and a light sweet bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A bit of a shock up front but quickly began to accept it. I can’t say I like it that much but I don’t dislike it either.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear dark-brown colour, small white head. Aroma is a bit chocolate and metallic hop. Taste sweet, with a nice bitterness, short finish with a few roasty aromas. Carbonation is fizzy, a bit too much, mouth feel more watery.
Few roast and typical dark beer aromas, strange metallic astringent aftertaste. No Schwarzbier of my taste.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark beer, with a modest layer of foam. It has a sweet aroma like syrup. It also tastes sweet and the syrup-touch moves along with it. It has a somewhat bitter-like aftertaste, but doesn’t last long.
Een donker bier, met een bescheiden lichtbruine kraag. Het aroma is zoet en doet denken aan stroop. De smaak is enigszins zoetig en het stroperige gaat er in mee. Een lichtbittere nasmaak, maar deze blijft niet lang hangen.
