ogivlado (7764) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 18, 2017
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb as Koyt Gruitbier. Darker amber coloured, medium sized tan head, dried fruits in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, yeast, heavy spicy and notes of herbs with some dried fruits and light alcohol in the finish. Interesting but far from the best.

Kleurplaatje (195) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Pours medium brown with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of licorice, dark fruits, brown sugar, nuts, raisins... Extremely pleasant nose. Flavor is sweet. A bit too sweet to my likings, but it is acceptable. Clear notes of plums, dark fruits, nuts and roasted malts... There is a yeasty, lingering kick and a spicy end. The alcohol is a bit too present as well, which gives quite a burn near the end. After all, Koyt is quite a pleasant brew with a compelling nose. Yet, it has it’s clear unrefined misses

janubio (844) - SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Dark amber colour, reddish tones when held to the light. Medium head with long retention, good lace. Aroma is earthy, herbs, nuts, caramel. Sticky palate, medium to full body, strong carbonation. Taste of honey, caramel, chocolate, nuts.

3.9
nuplastikk (6211) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2017
Tap at Jopen. Creamy deep sweet malt tones. Deep sugary nuttiness. Not unlike a Dubbel, but with some added slick molasses, almost vanilla tones. Cool, classic beer.

3.7
Bijl (597) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2017
Bruin/ donker amberrood, donkergele schuimkraag, troebel en iets koolzuur. Aroma: Vol moutig, toffee, karamel, snoepzoet, kruidig, rozijnen, anijs. Smaak: Licht geroosterde zoete mouten, karamel, drop, anijs, cola, kruidig, bloemig, floraal. De kruidigheid blijft ook mooi lang hangen... spicy en iets warmte. Voor een bier zonder hop nog redelijk bitter. Medium body, zacht en romig mondgevoel, afdronk is kruidig, zoet en plakkerig.

3.8
Gurthnar (5816) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from Drinkshop. Surprisingly balanced and easy drinking. Alcohol hidden well. Considerable caramelly malty base, along with the associated sweetness. Well balanced by the herbs, anise stands out for me, but overall balance is quite nice.

3.7
Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2017
Tap. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate herbs and sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet & herbal flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex beer.
