3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish with a huge, mostly lasting off-white head. Good lacing. Grape and plum aromas, delicious fruity notes and some citrus too. Brown sugar. Bold and spicy, fruity flavours with a yeasty boost. A bit sour in a very nice way. Very well balanced alcohol... and I’m usually picky about this. Toasted caramel, some soft blackberry-like flavours but not overwhelming. Good, but I prefer others.

0,33 l Flasche aus einem lokalen REWE-Markt. Kastanienbraun, mäßig Kohlensäure, schöne feinporige Schaumkrone. Riecht süßlich, nach Hefe, Karamell, Teig. Im Geschmack ähnlich, kaum bitter. Fast wie ein Likör

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with a long lasting beige foam head. The nose has licorice and heavy yeasty notes. The taste is well balanced with a little too belgian carbonation. Licorice and sweet yeasty and malty parts work well together. Calm aftertaste. This beer is a very nice representative of its style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel color pour that settles murky brown with very active fizzy off white head. Smells of sweet fruit, yeast, and a slight musk. Fairly strong carbonation in the mouth. Medium body. Flavor is heavy caramel, slight fruity notes, straw/hay. Flavor profile is nice and doesn’t lean heavily in any direction.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottl (one of those whacky 11.2 oz sized ones the fuckin Europeans use). Pours a burnt sienna color, off white head with not much retention to speak of. Nose is dried fruit, a little bit o’ funk, band aids, vanilla, toffee, malt. Mouth is medium-full and creamy, sharply carbonated, relatively dry, hints of cider, banana, spice, toasted pumpernickel, fair amount of dried fruit (figs, raisins and prunes), reminiscent of whiskey without the charcoal. Solid.
