Countbeer (3920) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2013
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red colored beer.
Aromas of red fruit, strawberries and berries, yeast, chalk, leaves, wood, hint of peppery dust, cinnamon and meat, some malts, toast and liquorice (wood).
Flavours of spices like pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, dry, bitter, malt toast, berries, some strawberries and a hint of cherries, barley malts, nuts, leaves, some autumnal herbs and hay toast.
Aftertaste is toasty, malty, peppery, woody and porridge.
Low to medium carbo, creamy and lightly blown spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
One part of me really likes this beer with the pepper and such but the other half misses some interesting/complex body. Good beer but not what I expected.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle via trade. Pours a cola color with a small off white head. Aroma is of strange dried fruits, pepper, chilies, chocolate and over-ripe borderline rotted fruit. Taste is strange, earthy pepper, chilies, light heat, chocolate, dried fruits, light vegetable notes in there as well. Not my thing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml cork and caged bottle shared by Dean. Poured a murky muddy brown with a brown small foamy head. Aroma of milk, peppers, bad stale green peppers, soap, old toast. The body was foamy with loads of carbonation, a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, notes of bad chocolate, old green peppers and bad bread. Not sure if I drank the same beer as all the other raters (I know I did it was a corked bottle) wish mine tasted/rated like everyone else’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 37,5 cl, best after 21.12.2012. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Dark fruits as
in raisins, bit of yeasty notes, old cellar notes too in aroma. Sweet dark raisins fruityness in taste,
some chocolate, a bit of biting hot and light spicyness as in cinnamon in flavor. Soft and moussy
mouthfeel. Excellent as a dessert beer together with some ice cream. Aftertaste has even that nice vinous
vibe in it.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, farinsocker, kakao, belgisk jäst, mörk torkad frukt med fokus på russin med toner av chili. Rund och len, lagom sötma, välbalanserad med en trevlig beska. Gott.
