Pours a murky amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, chestnut, spices. Flavour is much the same, subtle sweetness. Overall a bit on the thin side, but I enjoyed my bottle. Speaking of bottles, I really appreciate the presentation this brewery has chosen for its beers.

Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of malts, nuts, quite fruity, light herbal notes. Sweet flavour, chestnut, mint and some nutty notes. Finish liquorice, laurierdrop and brown sugar. Decent brew!
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

Bottle. Amber body, good sized white head. Thick and nice body for the strength. Aroma of caramel, hops, nuts. Taste is sweet, brownies, grass, toasted malt, flowery biscuit ending. Not among Borgos most exciting beers but absolutely a drinkable one.

mkel07 (6140) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2013
750ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. There is an earthy finish to this beer that takes something away from the flavour. Pretty decent beer though as are most of the beers I have had from this brewery.
Earlier Rating: 8/18/2012 Total Score: 3.3
750ml bottle. Very hazy muddy tea like colour. Modest aroma however the flavour is quite good. Not the most appealing looking beer but it makes up for it with the flavour.
