3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle from MC Kiosk in Bonn, best before 21/1/2016. Clear, deep red with a massive, foamy, stable and tan head. Pleasant, fruity-malty aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, juniper, redcurrant and raisins. Sweetish-fruity taste of redcurrant, mushrooms and juniper with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Short, slightly bitter finish with lots of juniper. Medium body, slightly creamy texture, average carbonation. Very interesting stuff but not totally convincing. The juniper is a bit too dominant so that the beer is somewhat unbalanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from tiong (Matias). Quite red mahogany with a generous biege/brown head that unlike some others both appears and has staying power (unlike your first time). A very bready malt, almost chewy and wet, caramel with some toffee; low carbonation, quite sweet with a moderate to mild body, lots of caramel with a slight bitterness hop on the finish. A little too much sweetness for me though.
