3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herbal hop nose with light pale malts. Very toasty character. Clean, toasty with light chocolate. Good, characterful dunkel that nonetheless could use more sugars.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A copperish colour with a dense head. A clear citrus nose with grassiness, few bready malt aromas. Powerful flavour of whole grain bread, biscuit and caramel malts (not sweet) and overall a nice hoppy balance. An undeniably weird tobacco flavour that spoils the fun a bit. Somewhat oily in texture but still sufficiently mouthfilling. Sessionable with soft carbonation.

500ml Bottle - Amber/copper coloured. Malty and fruity aroma with hints of dried fruit and spicy malt. Malty taste with fruit and moderate sweetness. Not bad, but nothing special.

It is dark golden with a creamy, firm head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, fruit and it is smooth, delicious and easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Spuyten. Pours a clear dull deep orange amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is a slight bit DMS, with earthy hints, ok toasted malts, seemed a bit stale with cracker and dried malts, a bit cereal like as well. Flavor is more pale toasty malts, nutty, slight chocolate with a hint of oxidation. Perhaps a bit too old or stale.

Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Very dought, vegetal, clean and crispy. French fries, oddly enough. Mellow and clean. Not much to say about this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil - clear gold/copper with a thick, foamy head - aroma is doughy and vegetal, with some floral, spicy noble hop bite over the top of it - fairly sweet, honey-ish flavor - flowery noble hops are persistent, and give it a nice bitter kick - another good one!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Aroma is fairly malty and grainy. Some light minerally/herbal hoppiness but a restrained sweetness still comes through. Toasty and sweet with a soft caramelly character. Light noble hops that lend a light floral component to this one. I really liked this one too.
