3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml corked & caged green bottle, batch #247, from the brewery. BB date Dec. 2020. ABV is 13.2%. Cloudy dark brown colour, low beige head dies out instantly. Strong sweetish aroma of oak, malts, molasses and fusel alcohols, also notes of raisins and other dark dried fruits. Very moderate carbonation in the mouth, warming mouthfeel. The fairly sweet flavour has notes of oak, malts, fortified wine and dark dried fruits, also herbs and spices. No acidity, not much sign of brett here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky brown color with no head. The cork didn’t even pop when I took it off. Huge rich malty nose. This is a sweet beer with brown sugar, molasses, wood, port, buttered toast, and candi sugar. I don’t get any Brett in here. Boozy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle cheers to Papso himself. Pours dirty brown with pretty much no head. Nose shows some very heavy christmas cake fruits - heavy plum and prunes, sticky date, heavy caramel, toffee biscuit, light herbal/grassy notes. Taste shows heavy caramel - I’m talking thick, gluggy, gooey caramel. WOrks well with some heavy fruits - focusing on dates. Sticky sweet. Resinous. Cool stuff. Drinks very well for 13%. Enjoyable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the DISOB tasting, Den Haag. Poured a murky brown with no life at all. The aroma is rich and alcoholic, leading to a rich bitter thick alcoholic
fruity flavour. The warm bitter alcoholic palate is more welcome than a St Bernard after being caught in an avalanche. Not what I expected but a truly amazing beer.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Medium amber color with a white head. Aroma is full of toffee with some dark fruit and tobacco. The flavor is a mix of dark fruit, toffee and brown sugar, with a healthy alcohol burn. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.
