2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Smiske Bruin) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 7%
Light gusher. Huge beige head as expected from the gushing, very thick of course and with that size retention couldn’t be any less than good. Colour of the beer itself is an amber brown one.
Aroma of toffee, grains, very faint chocolate in between, caramel, some red fruits.
Taste follows, red fruits, grains, nuts, a light sourness.
Medium thin body, very high carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The second beer developed by Johan Brandt’s new brewery, with thick but quickly collapsing, opening, yellowish white head and ’autumn-like’ bronze colour with rusty brown glow, clear but hazy with deposit. Strong aroma of ripe plums, apple sauce, candied figs, tea, chocolate, coffee grounds, nutmeg, dried leaves, clay, dry sherry. Fruity sweetness in the taste, a bit reminiscent of figs in ’jenever’, spicy accents, chocolatey malts but everything is unfortunately drenched in a wry phenolic sauce; in the finish, a grapefruity hop bitterness sets in as well as badly hidden, somewhat astringent alcohol. Flawed.

Een beetje een tegenvaller voor mij, ik had gedacht dat er wat meer smaak aan ging zitten

Brune avec peu de corps, beaucoup de mousse, rien d’exceptionnel.
Je n’ai pas trop aimé.

330ml bottle (Cuda na Kiju, Warsaw)
Funky sour aroma, almost bretty. Slightly yeasty belgian aroma. Pleasant crisp palate, carbonation quite high. Liquorice later. Chilli heat in the late finish. Marduk’s mad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy dark brown color with a large foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy caramel, molasses and fig. The flavor was dryish with notes of molasses, caramel, vanilla, biscuit, tart cherry and malted milk. Long dryish cream, caramel and vanilla finish. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.
