Fresh herbs and clove aroma. Heavy flavours, mainly herbs and bitter. some roasted malts and the aftertaste starts alcoholic on the uvula, after that a spyce aftertaste and clove/cinamon. Okay, but really not my favorite ’t IJ beer.

Cloudy amber with pillows tan head. aroma mostly obscured by the head. Thick and sweet with bitter finish. Strong finish of carbonation. I used to live down the block from these guys, so drinking a Columbus always brings back good memories.

Thick like syrup. Not the easiest beer in Amsterdam to drink as it’s quite creamy and a little bit sour.

Aroma from peach and tatse the same or maybe some other sweet fruits. Great body and very thin ringed body. Good to combine with some crepes or waffles.

Bottle @ Onderbroek, Nijmegen. Straight out of bottle. Great dark taste. Dark fruits, brown sugar, sweet notes. Very surprising taste. Loved it. Would love to drink this one out of a glass.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the t’Ij brewpub, Amsterdam. Dark amber, hazy body, with a medium, very creamy, white head, that leaves a full lacing. Aroma is a bit light, with dried fruits, burnt sugar, some citrus. Tastes of dried fruits, caramel, nuts, chocolate, some fruity hop notes like citrus and tangerine. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, a bit sweet and with sour dried fruits. Nice. Petty easy to drink despite the high ABV and with nice dried fruit notes. But overall I’ve had much better beers of this style.
