Dankzij dutchdrebus. Bruin kleurtje met een beige schuimkraag. Ruikt naar mout, chocolade en een beetje kruidig. Smaakt een beetje als een stout, mout, chocolade, caramel en een beetje fruitig.

Bottle @ benzai shared by me. Dark brown colour with a large off-white to beige head. Smells some distant chocolate, some herbs, slightly roasty, malts. Pretty nice. Tastes chocolate, malts, sweetish, some liquorice, herbs. Pretty amazing beer. I usually don’t like these sort of beers, but this one is spot on. Medium body, soft carbo, highly enjoyable.

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is very neutral, caramel malts, soil, almond essence, grass, sugar. Taste is also very neutral, caramel malts, grass, harsh hay, sugar, soil. Medium bitterness, thin body. So boring!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a magnificent deep copper-hued brown body with a large creamy off-white head. Nose is faint sugary malts, red fruits and hints of coca-cola. Taste is neutral sweet malt tones, faint grains, sugar and hints of banana. Pretty faint for its ABV. Medium body, high carbonation. Pretty dull and disappointing; I had higher hopes for this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from bottle I had earlier today. Served in a taster: Didn’t make notes, so this is a short rating straight from what I remember.
An almost clear red ish orange to red ish amber colored beer with a small ashy off white foamy head on top of it.
Aromas of soap, some hop, some flowers, floral tones. Crispy aroma with lot of fresh herbs.
Flavour is a good mix of bitters, herbs, hops, light floral tones, malts, a slight yeast and grass touch. Also crispy. But also smooth, balanced and very easy drinkable!
Aftertaste is floral, bitter, some herbal hop tones and crispy grass with a light malt bitterness.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a creamy texture.
I enjoyed this a lot! Was expecting a good beer from La Rulles!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark caramel color, poor head. Very small floatings. Sweet smell of fruity malt. The body is medium, sweet malty taste, I’m feeling alcohol while drinking. I like this yeast feeling. The aftertaste is bitter, velvet palate. A nice experience to catch during the Winter.
