4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Into a tulip glass. A finger and half of head on a dark brown colored body.
The aroma is crushed grain and roasted malt. Nice.
The taste is roasted malt, some dark fruit and the mildest bitterness. Complex but not heavy.
The texture is crisp with lower carbonation and medium body.
A great ale and tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piwo klarowne w kolorze czarnym z niezbyt obfita gubopecharzykowa piana. W aromacie lekka kawa i sliwki suszone. W smaku palony karmel, rodzynki i troche nut drewnianych. Wysycenie i goryczka na dosc niskim poziomie. Spodziewalem sie wiecej doznan jak na ten styl.

Pours a lovely dark shade with a hint of red. Aroma I struggled to find anything except a vague whiff of coffee, taste however was very pleasant, strong malty yet sweet flavours combining perfectly together leaving a lovely bitter aftertaste, lots of great roasted flavours involved, a good buy!

Bottle, 50 cl, Au comptoir de la bière, Callian (83). Overall very nice ale: smooth yet convincing. Pleasant mouthfeel, mild bitter finish. To me, ABV should not be higher: well balanced in all respects.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pouts dark nut brown, with slight lacing. Hint of roast coffee, banana notes, licorice, peach. Interesting fruity notes for such a malty character too! Sweet, bready finish - perhaps a touch thin. Really nice ale!

500ml bottle BB 28/2/2017
Sweet spicy aroma.
Pours dark brown with cream head.
Mild bitterness with minor residual malty aftertaste but that’s about it.
I was expecting a lot more body and but what i got was a very thin finish.

This beer really reminds me of westmalle’s trappist dubble. Some metallic taste in here but otherwise quite good, or not bad, perhaps somewhere between.

Et fint skum, der som tidligere anmeldelse kunne minde lidt om hvidt-øl.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nut brown ale typical smell, head disappears quickly, nice brown towards red colour. Low to medium carbonation, fizzy type. Not too dry, citrus, leather, not too much is going on. Some bitter aftertaste. Bottom line, a bit flat, but I like the sour twist.
Nice 10 word crime novel on the back side of the bottle :)
Grade explanation: It is a nut brown ale, if you like this type it could be interesting. I don’t like this type of beer and therefore a low grade.
