The beer disembarks the 330ml brown bottle a clear deep brown with a perpetual frothy tan head that lingers on, but after its depletion to nothingness, the residual lace forms a tight skirt upon the glass. Nose is musky, hints of caramel with a nice malt sweetness; a fine sniffer to be sure, start is somewhat sweet with a pleasing grain presence, top is fair to middling in its feel. Finish is benignly acidic, the hops present and pleasing, the aftertaste dry and a fine beer to end the evening with.

A dark brown color with loads of foam that just sits there indefinitely. When the head begins to deflate, it leaves behind excellent lacing. Aromas of caramelized sugar, malt, and candy. The taste is refreshing and engaging with a fruit flavor that works into both the sweetness and the bitterness of the beer. A very delicate beer in that all of the textures and flavors collaborate with one another. Impressive beer for its lack of overpowering, dominating characteristics. Very drinkable, especially with a lower ABV for this style. Quite thin in my mouth.

BB 14-07-07. Good presentation with nice welllasting thick yellowish head. Clear darkbrown beer make it a good presentation. Nose is dark candy, carramellic malty and a slight hint of roast. Good and full yeastester arome completes this quiet good smell. Taste is far oversweetened, dark candied, carramellic, alcoholic maltjuice. No this is certainly not my taste and for mouthfeel is to say that my mouth shrinked together while drinking this. For people who like it sweet probably highly enjoyable but less to me.
