3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown beer with a thin off-white head. Smell is nicely malt, toasty, with toffee, faint plum and brown sugar. Flavour is chewy, malty and toasty. A bit of distracting hop skunkiness in spite of the nice maltiness. Herbaceous flavour mixed with toasted malt. Finishes with light toast and noble hop flavour.

Bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with a short-lived beige head. The aroma is malty and bready. The taste also has malty bready character and a little caramel notes. Tasty and very much above average for an InBev product.

Dark-malty taste with chocolate and shy notes of caramel; medium bodied, crispy carbonation; moderately dry malty, light-bitter finish with shy notes of herbal hops. Not bad, a bit mediocre.
