3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml long neck bottle. Into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7%
Light and transparent brown amber colour with one finger of off-white head on top. Average retention, light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of caramel and light roasted malts.
Taste is of roasted malts, a bit sour-ish. Becomes mildly bitter on the aftertaste as the roasted malts take over, along with hints of caramel.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Kind of disappointing appearance but other than that an average to decent dubbel.
