3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy, almost dirt-like brown, with a thin beige head.
Malty, roasted aroma, chocolate, coffee, yeast, hops, some phenolic notes going on as well.
Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Roasted, malty taste, chocolate, yeast, phenols, coffee, earth, caramel.
Flavourwise it is totally OK, but the light phenolic notes get me wondering, and the yeasty notes gives this beer a sort of home brewer’s air to it. (2012-12-20)
