3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-brown with rather large tan head. Intense aroma of baking bread, red fruits, molasses. Full body. Just a little alcohol. Flavor matches although not as intense as aroma. Pretty strongly sweet though, bread and dark fruits. Overall it’s probably a little too sweet and syrupy, but the aroma especially and also the flavors are really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Served in a shaker:
What the fuck is wrong with this beer: massive gusher and when poured out completely, which took ages because of the lively beer and foam, there are loads of yeast sediments in my foam...
Anyways, let’s get unto the beer:
Medium to bigger sized beige light brown ish foamy head on top of a deep dark hazy to murky brown colored beer.
Aromas of carbo gass, malts, nuts, leaves, toast, toffee, autumnal herbs and some berries.
Flavours of toffee, raisin, dried prunes, autumnal leaves, bitters, herbs, nuts, toast, spiced, yeast, grains, hint of cacoa, hay toast and some bittersweets.
Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, dried prunes, some hay and grass, some yeast and leaves.
Low to medium carbo, creamy spiced mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a light creamy texture.
Loads of yeast which makes this look like a fucking chocomel! Aside from that irritating gusher, a decent beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brown, nice head (in an offnote, bottle almost exploded when opening). Nose: something sourish, chocolate powder. Taste: lot of CO2, yeast. Finish is sweet, with again chocolate but feels like something is wrong on this one. Have to try this again, had it better before.
