3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well, since I have turned 50 and then some and like beer, it is natural to try to combine interests! So I opened an Anti Aging beer, hoping for miracles.... The head disappears very quickly on this almost black schwartzbier. The aroma is malty in a "hvidtøl" kind of way and it has notes of berries. The mouth feeling is rather smooth and the flavour has notes of berries (raspberry among others), a bit of licorice and some other notes, that is hard to pinpoint. But I do know the aroma of spirulina, and I think I can recognize it in the taste. It’s a mild and delicious beer with an sufficient bitter finish - and I guess it takes more than one to get results in the anti-aging front....

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ YNWA. Pours a very deep red with a fine creamy off white head. Aroma has fruit, weak berries and roasted malts. Watery palate. Quite sweet and rather dull flavours of smoky and roasted malts as a well as a butt-load of Belgian sugars. Far too sweet flavour really lets down a nice look.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Midium high creamy, quickly disappearing off-white head. Clear very dark red, almost black, body. Strange mix of berries, caramel and hops in the aroma. First impression of flavor: Sour dry malt. Second thought: Pleasant smooth and non-offfending (read: boring). Still 4.8% pretty impressive. Low carbonation. Long berries aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Weird stuff is this. I don’t feelk like aging this beer, so the warning is a bit over the top. :-) Aroma, of roasted chocolate and caramel malts. Even a tiny smokey tone. Very dark ruby coloured with a lasting, thin, off-white/brown head. Taste is sweet, chocolate malty, some spice/vegetable accent. Cola taste in it. Sticky. Not my thing.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
I feel so much younger, but rather than r5efreshed and alive, I feel I’ve recaptured the stupidity I thought I might have left behind. My old boss gave this to me and I had it tucked away in the fridge for months thinking it was a non-alcoholic beer until seeing the 4.8%. Tastes too much like a malt, malto, or whatever those malt based drinks aer w/ no alcohol. I didn’t spit it out nor pour it out, but really didn’t enjoy that grainy malt and non-descript hop, just can’t get past the taste taste. I wouund up drinking about six ounces which seemd far too much before mixing another beer into it. If this is the beer for you, may we never go pub crawling together ....
