3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A gusher, almost clear though, topped by a dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. Dark brown in color. Roasted malts, lots of chocolate, some dried fruits and a faint yeast note on the nose. The flavor has vanilla and coffee blending in with the roasted malts and chocolate known from the aroma. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish. A decent beer, but a tad boring I think. Lacks depth. 140530

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with huge light beige head. Sour berries, some weird musty taste like old spice mix, rye, cola, light nuts, light citrus and pine. Some grains and a hint of coffee. Sour with bitter finish. Medium bodied, way too much carbonation. This is kind of weird, quite interesting though but the carbonation doesn’t help.
