500ml bottle. Peach colored, low white head, diminishes fast. Yeasty grape aroma, pretty light. Palate is thick but no carbonate. For me, this taste likes vodka mixed with standard lager.

A very sweet, caramel maltiness. A lot of alcohol in the aroma and in the taste. A little overpowering and could be smoother.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 33 cl. Amber color with minimum fast vanishing white head. Sweet pungent malts, rye bread, caramel, boozy, toast. Really strong pungent sweet malts and too boozy flavors. Needs something to tame down the boozy one dimensional flavor and give it more depth to be better and more drinkable.
