3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer in the glass is copper-colored, with a flat, soapy head and many yeast particles in the glass. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly spicy-malty and alcoholic. Starts caramelly, with a lot of yeast and brown sugar, overall very sweet. The middle part shows slightly alcoholic, sugary-sweet and malty, spicy with some caramel. In the background, a subtle hop flavor is noticeable. Goes into a yeasty, caramelly-sweet and slightly alcoholic finish!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 300 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass.ABV 7,5%
Pours a light amber beer, with a big off white head, average retention and no lacing.
Light roasted malts on the aroma, caramel, some spices.
Taste follows the aroma, only not so much roasted malts but more of a caramel and chocolate/toffee taste. Overall quite sweet.
Thin to medium body, light carbonation. Dry on the palate.
Not bad, but it could use a bit more body and carbonation, as the end result is a bit watery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass quite dark, almost black, short living head. Starts warming-malty with fine spicy notes. Modest sourish background, not very roasty. Finish drier, but still well balanced. Nice!
