3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a nice beige head. Aroma has malt, light roasted caramel, dry fruit and Belgium yeast. Flavour is sweet and smooth malt, dry fruit, burnt sugar and Belgium yeast. Medium body and fine aftertaste. Nothing super complex, but well-made and tasty. It might have something to do with time & place (and specially the cheese!) but this beer surprised me as a really nice treat.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s hazy dark brown with a red hue. The aroma has notes of yeast and spice, quite dominating, a touch of licorice and roasted malt. The sweet flavor has notes of yeast, spice, licorice, fruits (orange citrus fruits) - somehow I feel the American hops collide with the rest of this beer. The finish is slightly bitter.
