3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great nose, palate slightly on the thin side. Long aftertaste with a bitterness that sets in at the end. Ramses sure knows how to make beers.
Had this at the Noordelijk Bierfestival 2010 in Groningen

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Dark brown to black pour with a thick creamy and foamy off-white to tan head. Aroma is grassy hops, burnt malts, some bitter coffee and slightly sweet citrus fruits. Flavor is quite bitter, almost like a black IPA with loads of grassy hops, roasted malts and slightly sour citrus. Slightly messy, but powerful brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is lovely hops, fruit, chocolate and liquorice.
Flavour is thinner than expected, same for mouthfeel, with a medium bitterness, quite dry, with a faint hint of sweetness. Lot’s of liquorice, hops, some fruit. Good beer, but more body would be nice.

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!
