3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle from Sterk. Brown-red color, hazy. Rather dense light beige head, with a thin layer retention. Aroma’s: caramel malts, light plastic, light coffee-roast, yeast. A bit more coffee retronasal, with caramel malts (sweet) and light bitterness and some plastic. Flavor is moderate sweet with roasted coffee, light bitter, light fruit. Medium bodied. Finish is hard roasted, quite bitter. OK experiment, but maybe they should try to contract-brew this at a different brewery.
