3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, May 2008. Opaque deep, dark brown color with a medium, disappearing light tan head. Flavor is of liquorice, some ripe banana, a touch of plums and burnt suga/ caramel. Nice but a bit rough. Medium mouthfeel, flavorfull and warming. Really drinkable, finishes a bit suddenly though. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Molasses aroma, although somewhat shy. Nice and drinkable bock.
Bottle from Dranken Vandewoude and drunk at home. Dark brown beer lasting tan head. Lacks a little carbonation. Some light milk chocolate. It’s actually quite light overall. Not much hop. Ok if a luttle light. Inoven (806) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2017
Donker roodbruin bier met matig schuim. Aroma van caramel en donker fruit. Smaak is zoet en fruitig. Jammer dat de smaak snel wegebt Zilverenmaan (248) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2017

Deep ruby-brown pour with beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel, raisin, roasted malts. Taste is accordingly medium sweet, but a little flat after the promising aroma. Bit low on carbo.
