2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle bb01/2015 shared by bastarda 11/14. Honeycoated almonds and roasted maroni in the aroma are subdued by sawdust flour. Repeat in taste: a chestnut peel astringency joins the forward caramels, dusted by mealy-mouthed maroni powder. Off-balance dubbel with a few interesting autumn flavour pockets.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
shared with Bierle, bartlebier and Hugi. Fusel-nose, once used to the fusel, subtler notes of dried pears, yellow dried fruits in general, some mirabelle compote. As almost expected, this tastes too sweet, like some yeast having gone to sleep too early, and combined with that harsh and burnt plastic aspects this is a bit too homebrewy, underdefined and that blackthorn aftertaste just adds to this.
