2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unlabeled bottle (likely 33 cl) thanks to SaintMatty! Sampled in February 11, 2014. From Bar Kino.
Shady brown color, builds up a huge amount of foam that settles to a very big creamy tan head. Couldn’t pour more than half the bottle into a pint glass. Plenty of lacing left on the glass once the head starts to settle.
Sweet, caramel, a bit fruity, very nice and mellow scent, inviting. Malty, grainy, mineral, dry, some non sweetened toffee if that makes sense, taste. A lot less sweet (well not sweet at all) than I expected from the scent. I was expecting, and hoping for, some sweet malt and caramel, turned out to be more dusty and to some sort of light acidic berry. Taste also falls a bit short, huh. To the low low side CO2 thin mouthfeel, with all that head build up would almost think it’d be fizzy, but not so. Grainy, mineral, light of rye bread aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, fairly dry at that.
Looks nice (could be less shady/cloudy), smells nice with lots of promises. Falls a bit flat when it comes to taste and mouthfeel though, as well as the complete overall factor of drinkability and enjoyment.
