3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with beige head. Aroma is mostly pine, little bit of citruses and coffee too. It has sticky, oily mouthfeel. Rather high sweetness harmonizes with sharp bitterness which makes this beer very drinkable.

BBE 20-06-2015. Musta, pieni stouttimainen vaahto. Kevyttä schwarzbieriä tuoksussa. Liukas, makea, väljähtänyt, lievää savuisuutta, kohtalainen runko. Tässä kunnossa juotava perushyvä bisse.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 25cl sample @ Drie Dorstige Herten. The aroma has rye, pine, toffee, some ash/roast tones. Very hazy, brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has roast, pine, toffee. Medium bodied. Okayish don’t think the rye, darker malts combined with the IPA is a really good combination.

42nd Floor Tasting. Thanks to the handsome charismatic Hawaiian pizza lover. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Light palate, decent fine carbonation. The thin dark malts bring a touch of bitterness. Mild piney hops, little spice. Light finish. Moderate bitter linger. A light CDA and a good foundation for a better one.
