3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Looks liquidised bread indeed, and smells of bread, hops, sour-sweet, as if expecting black-ipa, all in a medium way. Taste is sour rye... carbonation kicks in with slight watery side, accompanied with chokeberry, in the end rubbery not. Rye overall lets itself be known through most phases described, but perhaps closer to bottles end sour note lingers without an adittional taste accompany?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the multi-national tasting held in Rome-Italy on 29/08/2015 (Jow, Mortlach, ippopotamo36 and Marco). Bottle courtesy of Riko. Pours an almost chestnut skin color, cloudy with a ivory tick head. Nose: caramel notes, sweet licorice root, grounded barley for infusion. Mouth: too gassy, rye mixed with candy sugar. Strange but tasty. It reminds me of barley-coffee.
