3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish copper colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Toasty malty and nutty aroma with notes of caramel, a tinge of molasses and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a pleasantly calm and well-matured carbonation. Solid roast-malty taste with loads of caramel/burnt sugar, dark chocolate and mocha with a drying hops character in the backyard; dry-ish, mildly sweet roasty and bitter hoppy finish with subtle fruity notes. Good. 03.IX.12

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from bierpost.com. Clear amber-brownish colour, mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel. Medium-bodied elicious malt flavours with a biscuity touch and caramel, fudge and roasetd malts - really really good. Rounded off by some pleasant aromatic hops. Smooth and velvety overal character, bitter-sweet in the mouth long after swallowing. Very, very good.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too dry. Interesting caramel notes, modest roasty. Finish well balanced, mild-dry. A good one!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 13.03.13. Great nose, really doughy and lightly spicy malt, caramel with burnt bread crusts and even a little pumpernickel, beautiful (and unusual!) dark garnet pour with a rocky tan head. Watery light body with some caramel, fizzy with faint bitterness, but thankfully isn’t all that sweet, and so wins on balance points. There are some dirty bitter burned notes, almost ashy, which come to dominate at the finish and beyond, but the overall impression is a good one.
