Pours dark brown with a big head. Smells of candy. Tastes like a sweetened dubbel with a thin watered down finish. Too sweet for me.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Dark brown color. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is really sweet, like maltose lemonade. Nasty chemical aftertaste. Lacks depth. This is really bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The head is medium, the body black. It smells caramel, sweet, christstollen, honey, honey cake. The taste is very sweet,, honey, brown sugar, caramel, honey cake. Medium, a bit less sugar taste would be better in my opinion. 10/9/8/9/10/9

Bottle with thanks to my sister. Very dark borwn with smallish tan coloured head. Disappears super quickly. Aromas are quite sweet, artifically so. A touch of roasted grain an that is about it. Flavours are super sweet. Thin mouthfeel and that is about it. Thanks Cath.
