3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. it pours a hazy amber red beer with a fizzy bubbly light beige head. The head retention is mediocre. Inviting, rich, slightly smoky nose where hints of caramel, raisin, coffee, almonds, nougat, vanilla, walnut and lemon peel show up which are accompanied by strong notes of peanut butter and tobacco. Sweet, delicately smoky taste. Creamy palate and gentle carbonation. Medium bodied. Lovely malt profile. A lot of peanut butter in the flavor again. Late moderate bitterness. Hardly any lacework. Flawless balanced finish which is reminiscent of nougat, asparagus and peanut butter. A remarkably delicious beer. Big thanks Stefan!
