2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 75cl bottle from 3 Metades. When I opened the bottle it literary exploded. And half of it just got in my kitchen floor. For such an expensive beer this shouldn?t be fermenting like this. In the end I got 20cl of a brownish beer with a lot of notes of yeast... Not good, not impressed whatsoever for a ?10 bottle. Probably my last from Rolls.
[Re-rated on 18/7/2013] 75cl bottle courtesy of the brewery. Hazy light brown colour with a nice head. Some yeast, alcohol and caramel in the aroma. Metallic flavour. Much better than the first one, but not very impressive, though... For a such expensive beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
750 ml bottle. Courtesy of andregoncalves. Some sweet and metallic aromas. Gushing, infected. Pours murky copper, non appealing at all, with really fast vanishing head, leading to a headless beer. Taste is sweet, malty, some crispy texture. Medium body, high carbonation. Poor.
