Black color with dark head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Maybe little bit overcarbonated and the body preferably should be thicker. Pleasant caramel flavor with sweet aftertaste

28.10.2013. 0,5l Bottle. At the Hotel Alameda, Malaga. Black colour with a fast ending small tan head. Sweet with dark malty aromas. Rather thin and kind of watery. Faint notesof burnt malt. Sweet caramel at the end. Kind of dissapointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Petro): opp gjennom et beige skum stiger en bæraktig aroma. Fin munnfylde og den bæraktige smaken (solbær/bjørnebær) er så absolutt til stede. Delikat ettersmak med litt ekstra sødme mot slutten. Smaker kanskje mer som en dobbelbock enn en baltisk porter. God uansett.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - like a glass of cola, a red chink but mostly dark brown with no head.
Nose - more brown sugar than chocolate.
Taste - more brown sugar again.
Palate - thin for the alcohol and basically it tastes like a very badly made Belgian. Cloying and then thin.
Overall - does not reflect the style at all but I suppose it’s solid in some ways.

Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Looks and smells like a glass of coke. No head. Not much malt or hops going on, just demerara sugar. Didn’t really like this.
