2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This review is of two 500ml cans bought for me from IKEA in the UK, both BBD of 18 May 09, drank during a bad lager evening on 14 Mar 09.
Poured into my ’La Chouffe’ tulip glass (four times). Large off-white head sat on top of a dark amber, clear body. It looked fine and the glass showed it off to its full potential.
An aroma of tea with sugar was what I thought of as my nose approached the beer. Then some molasses and treacle came through.
The taste was strange, the tea smell gave way to a mild coffee flavour and some toffee sweetness, I didn’t like it much.
The body was weak, a bitter finish in the mouth didn’t help its cause and I was pleased they had been a free gift and I hadn’t paid for them.
Promised so much at first, but sadly lacking once tasted and when compared to other dark lagers.
