3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ meeting, tfs Menno! Aroma is loads of spices and caramel, some herbs, some hops. Weird but nice. Flavour has less sweetness than expected, quite some spice, deep and intense, medium bitter with a very nice and deep malt backbone, some caramel. Thick and syrupy palate.
A bit weird, but very nice.

Aroma is sweet malts, some spices and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is very well balanced, somewhat sweet spicy malts, licorice, caramel and a hint of coffee. Very thick body and decent carbonation. Nice brew. 7/4/8/4/16

What a impressive beer this is! And it’s a lager? Unbelievable. So many different flavours, very well hopped, great balance and looking beautiful. It reminds me of a dark American Strong Ale like Double Bastard Ale, not at all of a lager. Or even more confusing: a German lager.
