2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Briefly met the contact brewer during the said trade as well. If I am not mistaken this is a scaled up version of a homebrew of him. His face is portrayed on the label. Very minor gusher. Pours a dark fruit amber brown with at first big tanned head that fizzes away. Nose is sweet red fruit jam smell with a light sour edge to it, still lots of very sweet red fruits jam & light coca-cola sticky boozy nature. Very fizzy beer. Fizzy character interferes with the taste, thick leaves, liquorish, bark, quite a bit of coca-cola, lightly sour, odd BE-style off forest note, sticky boozy nature, sweet prunes, sour-ish syrup de Liège, sticky sweet & sour bark / prunes, light thick cardboard in the finish. Prickling body, dry thick cardboard finish. Didn’t feel really right too me. Too bad.
