2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
courtesy of André Gonçalves - hazy amber-brown beer with a little foam left; earthy and light vegetable-like aroma, notes of almonds; overcarbonated, some candied sweetness, earthy and astringent; some bitterness, light notes of ripe fruits and more earthy notes in the finish - not convincing

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
In short: An IPA attempt that is total mess with a strange array of flavors.
How: Bottle at Taberna Da Rua Das Flores, Lisbon Portugal.
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by a little beige ring of foam.
In long: Nose is floral, perfumy, aromatic tea, overall strange aroma that is hard to describe. Body has an oily texture and it is lacking carbonation, the mouthfeel was totally lifeless. Taste is old rotting tea, some kind of low sweetness table syrup, a weird sensation of artificial flower flavors, cooked apples, other weird stuff. What a mess this beer was. And that’s pretty much when I decided to drink only wine for the remainder of my stay in Portugal. Beers are so bad in Portugal that I went shopping three times to the same beer store before I realized it was actually a hardware store and I was drinking industrial lubricant.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottled in 3/2014. Maybe stored in a warm place for too long, maybe past its best time, which could maybe explain why this bottle was almost a gusher, (ok, maybe in the car for too long, but with enough time to settle down in the fridge). cooked vegetables-nose, mainly broccoli and leek. Tastewise a tour-de-force: bitter-hops-blast forcing the palate into almost post-dentist numbness. Where are all the aroma-hops gone?
