4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Unclear nutbrown with light brown head. All I really think of in the aroma is rye bread and maybe some toffee sweetness. Really nice aroma though! Pleasant sweet taste with the bitterhops sneaking in and dominating the finish. Oh this is good stuff. A full bodied brown ale with lots of hops is really among my prefered beer styles at the moment. This is a great example of why I love the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @Delirium Cafe in Brussels
Aroma of nuts, dark bread, caramel, green apples and a bit of solvent (faulty, not enough to fuck the beer up completely, but still it was annoying)
The malty side of the beer is good, but the faulty part was pretty bad.
