3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark in the glass with a beige head. The beer starts malty dry with a nice refreshing sour note. The mainpart is malty-dry and slightly sourish. In the aftertaste the beer is nicely dry, nearly no sweetness with hints of roasted malt. Thereby refreshing sourish nice.
A very interesting ale! Nice and highly drinkable. --> 12/12/12/12

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can - Pours dark brown with white/off white thin head. Strange aroma of refrigerated flowers, nut shell, and coffee. Roasted malty grain, slightly sweet, mild coffee, nutty, some earthy flavor like leaves smell, hops present in the after, but more malt. Not as rich as I hoped, but it’s good. I wouldn’t it down if someone offered me another one.
