3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2012 Tap (SOPP2012, Turku)
Smooth mellow gently woody aroma, sweet and rich. Looks lovely, a rich rusty orange. Super smooth in the mouth, succulent, and with just enough carbonation to make the sweetness not too sticky. Lovely mellow bready vapours - clearly packing, but not boozy. Slips down so easily, one pint is most likely to be followed by another!
Rerate: Aged vertical
BB2012-11: 6:4:6:3:13=3.2, some raisin even in aroma, nice hoppy bitterness, clear, and beautiful.
BB2011-05: 6:3:7:4:14=3.4, more oxidised, still hoppy, has gone a little misty.
Looking forward to a 3-way vertical in a few years time!

Poured from bottle. Foam nonexistent. Quite pretty nutty/ambery color. Taste is watery but has some caramel and yeast in it. A decent attempt but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brown beer with a weak and blond head. The nose is sweet and toffeeish, red berries. Quite simple, but nice aroma. Taste of sweet malts, toffee, some fruits, bitter herbs. The end is slightly alcoholic. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Simple, sweet and slightly alcoholic beer, quite OK.
