2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting. Brown colour, moderate off-white head. Strong aroma of prunes, almond essence and marzipan. The flavour is better than the aroma, and not as sweet as I feared, but still with notes of prunes and marzipan. Not too bad.

500ml bottle - Thanks Mari & Marduk
Sweet almondy aroma, which leads me to cherry. Starchy too. Dark red, sticky tan head. Metallic, ashy, more cherry than plum. Burntness harsh and ashy, nasty in the mouth. Do I get ginger in the finish? Can fight my way through this, but it’s really not good.

500ml bottle (thanks Mari & Kalm). Very dark brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Nice plums, juicy, sweet, chocolate in aroma. Watery roast, chocolate, plum washing water in taste. Watery. Smells better than tastes. Plum skins in aftertaste.

dark brown colour, half inch creamy beige head; aroma of a bit exaggerated plum, maybe some marzipan and some minimal roasted notes; taste of a typical tmavy with some moderate plum notes - really good fruit beer, nothing artificial, nothing sweetener
