2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle, best before November 2007, drank in June 2007.
I chose this beer (from my stash) because I had some Chilli Edam cheese my wife had bought for my Belgian beer night and I wouldn’t let her serve it because it would have ruined the tastebuds of everyone. I wanted to eat the cheese with a beer that would complement each other. My review is for the beer before I started eating the chilli cheese, although I enjoyed it more washing down the biscuits and cheese.
Poured into my Gordon’s Finest Gold thistle glass, it looks great.
Dark with an off white head.
The aroma is of sweet malts, the taste is weak and thin, so too the mouthfeel.
I thought this might be disappointing, I wasn’t mistaken, it will help wash down the chilli cheese.

Wygląd: Bardzo ciemna czerwień, niemalże czarne z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana szybko opada. Zapach: Paloność i chmiel. Smak: Kawa, chleb pumpernikiel. Ogólnie: Trochę puste i ciut wodniste ale mimo to solidne.
