3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vegetable nose that is off-putting, with a dusty grainy effect too. Lovely clear shimmering brown color. Caramelly malt, grainy. Metallic feel. Lots of character and got better through the glass, but I just didnít appreciate this all that much.

Bottled. Dark amber coloured, small beige head. Aroma is metallic with hints of caramel, slight roast, spices and salted licorace. Flavour is salted licorace, some caramel, slight hints of malts and really weak metallic hints in the background. Once it warms up it gets really much like salted licorace.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Large fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted. Very nice display of lacework. Clear sparkling amber color. Aroma was light dusty grains, with a mix of sweet caramel, hint of fruit, light spice and some roasted and candies sugar. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat dry texture with a hint of alcohol. Flavor was moderated caramel sweetness, note much bitterness to balance it with. Finish is again very sweet caramel. Maybe to sweet, but I still thought it was a nice beer.
