2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l can courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a nice brown cola-like body with a white head that went away at a medium pace. MIld caramelly nose, bit malty. The taste is unfortunately also mild and watery. Caramel, malt (slightly roasty), light breadiness... hop shows up stronger than expected but only near the end and in the aftertaste (still far from mind blowing). All in all, what could’ve been a nice beer is ruined by a body that’s way too light for its own good. Pleasant, drinkable but dull.

50 cl can, ’bbe’ July 08. Dark amber red, clear. Quickly collapsing head. Faint aroma of malt with a bit of chocolate. A rather slim malty taste with some hops and an aftertaste which is a combination of hop bitterness and fruit candy sweetness.

Dark brown color, caramel and spice in the nose. Slightly sour, caramel, milk chocolate in the mouth. Caramel raisin finish. This would be better if it just wasn’t so sour.

Canned. A dark brown coloured beer with alarge tan coloured head, but this dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is malty and fruity and maybe a little burnt. The taste is malty and sweet. Some nutty notes and some caramel. Really very drinkable and nicely tasty. Much better than expected. Cool.
