3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Quite good beer! The beer is dark brown, hazy, a bit darker than coke. Actually, the head looks a bit like coke too but with smaller bubbles. The aroma is warm, sweet, with some herbs and flowers as well. Interesting with the hops being so fresh! This tastes good, with a long hoppy finish as well. Nice as a whole!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2010 Bottle@BlindTasting, Oct 10, 2.2:Ttoo much laurel which makes it unbalanced. Dry mouth feel and thinnish. Tap@TilburgsBierfestival, Jun 10, 2.8: Looks and smells like a porter but in both flavour and mouth feel is quite weak. A bit watery even.
