3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught at Festival der Bierkulturen 2010, Köln) Hazy, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Toast-malty aroma with notes of sweet liquorice and a whiff of smoke and hops. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Hearty malt-character with moderate to subtle notes of dried fruits; sweet and slightly hop- and roasty bitter finish with present notes of alcohol. Nevertheless a well-balanced brew. 16.V.10

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dirty chestnut brown with a small off white head. Decent lacing left. Smells of over ripe dark fruits and bitter coffee - lots of plums, raisins and cherries. A slight sweetness throughout. Taste comes across as burnt and bitter coffee beans with a lingering sweetness of ripened plum and raisins. Brown sugar notes in there as well. A long, dry bitterness left on the palate. Pretty average
