330 ml. bottle @ home from Caigny. BBF 15/07/2017. Hideous label. Very dark, blackish brown, little mocha head. Nose is thick praline, chocolate truffles, huge aromatic citrus oil, very unique & outspoken (I have never eaten a yuzu), lots of the lightly sweetish citrus, light umami,… Taste is oily roast with lots of citrus oil, sweetish, lots of oil from citrus peel, light pralines, bitter roast, creamy hazelnut, dried orange peel in an almost marmalade-kind of way,… Interesting, if a bit too oily in all directions but noteworthy all the same,… Low carbonation, creamy & oily. Lingering oily citrus peel with quite a bit of umami, low roast,…. Very interesting beer. The base isn’t exactly to my preference but the fruit character on this was quite something else.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown almost black color. Massive size head, but that’s my sloppy pouring. Spicy, orange marmalade, very faint roast in aroma. Kind of weak aroma. First few sips are milky, roast, malty and ashy in taste. Later it turns more sour and citrusy and they don’t mix well. Well it’s a beer.
