O,33l fles meegebracht uit purerend. Donker bruin met een dikke cremkleurige schuimkraag. Geur geroosterde mout, alcohol. smaak is zoet droog van de alchol, met een tikkeltje wrange afdronk. Niet echt mooi in balans.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 ml bottle, Appearance: Very dark brown colour ,with a small 1 inger sized, thick beige head on top. Head has a good retention, and leaves medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma: A full dark fruits basket( figs, dates,elderberries.), some roasted malts, some apricots Nice !
Taste: Well the taste has a real suprise you take the tastes of the aroma but you add that Typically too sweet candy sugar Barley Wine style of the Jopen brewerie but this time you keep just in balance. by the roasted bitterness. Yes it; s sweet Fruity, but just enough roast to keep it nice. And with taste like that all the alcohol does is boost things. without comming into front.
Medium thick body, good carbonation with a slightly sticky palate.
Very good brew.. And quite unique. I would personally say it’s a barley wine not a triple !
