3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small cream-white head over copper-chestnut beer, clear. Sourish-chocolate, lactic acid, bit oakey, pickles. Sweet, chocolate, wood, cocoa, but a tad sweet. Wood returning in force at every sip, even with fresh vanilla-oak. Very slick, well-bodied, even syrupy, alleviated by both CO² and other acid. Txs, Tim! Gets an extra point for hailing from Chile, for chrissakes! Too sweet Oud Bruin, with a bit of Doppelbock thrown into.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared bij Abijen @ Borefts 2013. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin, off white head on top. Aroma is malty, oaky and there is a slight funky, butter-ish note to it. Flavor is about the same, with some alcoholic presences and spicy, herbal touches. Short, medium sweet finish. Not too impressive, funny countrytick though.
