2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Simple one with a bit dust, some coffee and caramel. Using sweeteners or sugar is definitely tasteable but beside this fact that beer is just a nice try to emulate a dark piwo. Ok one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Cuso - many thanks, Imro! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of sugar, brown sugar, malt, cake, bread and torf. Sweet and malty finish. Too much sugar for me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by sic1314 @ The Hague Tasting. Dark brown color with a nice deep dark red glare coming through, medium sized beige head that leaves nice lacing. Smell and taste malts, raisins, sweetness, some herbs or spices, maybe anise. Lightly oily texture, average to medium body, soft carbonation. Can’t help it but I don’t like it.
