2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at CK. Muddy murky ugly brown. No head formation. Super sweet honey nose with sweet cherries Some odd American unfiltered apple cider in there. Taste is vegetal and tea leave heavy with some lemon juice. Odd stuff. Not so bad. Mild acetobacter heat. Weird stuff. Not offensive.

Bottle at Eataly store, Bologna, Italia 26.02.11 Pours dark amber with a hazy white head. This is malty with a touch of sourness on nose. Soft in the mouth, likeable though not stunning. I did get the nuts but they weren’t too overpowering. A7 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

The right beer to drink in front of the fire with chestnuts on winter. The alcoholic gradation is very noticeable and the body is rather full. Soft carbonation, long finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, over ripe fruit - a bit too over ripe for my liking, metal, and caramel soup. The body is thick. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not at all what I was expecting. Maybe beyond its bbe or bad bottle - whatever. Poured with ok tan head and a little lace. Color is slightly hazy reddish amber. Aroma was chemical solvents. Some slight sourness as well. Body was ok and so was carbonation. Flavor’s the same. Finish is like flavor. I was really looking forward to this and am vastly disappointed. Maybe try again someday.
