3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. A bit hazy deep red color, medium sized lightly creamy white head. Smell malts, hops, some sweetness. Taste moderate to heavy malty, hops, hugely bitter, slightly a hint of fruit and some sweetness. Kind of a combination between an (I)PA and a barley wine imo. Full body, medium to full carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is thick sugary caramely malt, spices and more. Flavour is like a old belgian ale, aged for a bit too long. Apperently not meant for aging.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep brown body, creamy tan body. Rich earthy aroma, crusty apple pie, cinnamon and cloves. Yum. Nice concentrated taste, well justifies the abv. Light prickly body. Well balance between sharp hops and a rough malty, humus base. Some caramel later on. Sticky ending. Well developed but maybe not as smooth as could be. Nice one! (33cl bottle, batch 01.01, reasonably priced)
