3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at One Stop Market, Haverhill. Deep garnet brown color, no head. Aroma is molasses, raisins, prunes.
Flavor is a copy of the aroma.This is pretty much spot on a German example with a higher elevated alcohol level. Fuller body with a sticky texture over the palate. Of course this is sweet, such is the style. I think this very well crafted.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Woody brown hue with a thin light beige head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Very interesting nose of a perfumey citrus and boozy toffee malt, a kiss of bubblegum, a light kiss of chocolate. Full and boozy malty flavor with a light kiss of bubblegum and floral citrus, a nice complex body and flavor so layered it’s hard to dissect. There’s honey and floral hops and toffee and bock malt and light toast and something slightly perfumey.

Tap at Uiltje, Haarlem. Murky brown with a beige head. Sweet aroma of sweet malts, caramel, light roasted, sweet alcohol. Taste is sweet, sweet malts, sweet alcohol, sweet candy sugar aftertaste. Not too bad, just don’t like this particular style’s sweetness.
