Certified Cicerone ® & BJCP Recognized Beerjudge Bartender @ Beerlovers Bar & Owner @ Siris About Beer. All ratings displayed on this site are personal opinions, and are not neccesarily to be seen as professional reviews. Some of these beers have been drank in conditions that were far from optimal. If you'd like a professional review of your beer, please contact me. Always interested in meeting up/sharing beers / trading beer . Next to beer, I have a big passion for Ice cider, Mead, and Sherry. Exploring the wine and spirit world asside of this all. Allow me to explain a bit on how I score. These are based on personal enjoyment. Quality & 'in style' are part of that enjoyment, but won't totally make or break a drink, if I myself have a different opinion. Whiskey : Rated on the website 'whiskeybase' ( account Kraddell ) Wine : Rated on the App / Site 'Vivino' ( Account named Kraddel . ) <-- with the dot. Still searching a medium for other spirits, so those aren't online for now. If you know anything, let me know ;) For all mediums, the score is decided like this : 100 : Absolute perfection. Must have sampled it at least twice, and be mindblown twice. 90 - 100 : absolutely amazing. I'd like a drink like this anytime, even if it ain't the cheapest. 80-90 : Very damn good. It'll depend a bit more on the price - but this is probably one to seek out. 70-80 : better than average . Will likely enjoy again if it's priced compeditive. 70 : Average score for anything with alcohol . // 50 : The absolute middlepoint ( pure H2O ) Anything with alcohol beneath 50 is simply not worth drinking (seriously, concider your liver) // 05 : The absolute, final downpoint . Songs shall be written about how this attack to the tastebuds has started a rage within, killing inocent bystanders for no apparent reason - other than the fact my life is ruined by drinking this. On the other hand, it's kinda interesting to try something THIS bad, so you should probably seek it out ! As you can see, I use the FULL scale , and a rating of 70 by myself isn't bad at all !

8.3
Appearance - 8 | Aroma - 8 | Flavor - 8.5 | Texture - 9 | Overall - 8

Pours black, small ring of tanned head. Scent is intense, roast, mildly booze. Coffee and chocolate. Medium barrel profile (Bourbon leads the way) . Taste is full, roasty, sweet, JWB thickness ! Louder than usual on the BA booze. Chewy. Nice roasty and chocolate finish. Lovely, but what else would be expected ?

Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 7.5 | Flavor - 8 | Texture - 7 | Overall - 7.5

Pours unclear blonde, medium sized white, stable head. Scent is fresh, bit hoparoma (full fruityness, citrus and grassyness come to mind) . Nice malty base and an outspoken lager yeast profile. very inviting, bit helles like, enjoyable! Taste is full, bitter, reminding of 13 but more hoparoma in this one. Still, citrussy and a bit grassy. Herbal bitter finish is quite pronounced. Lovely. Malty, and expressive on the yeast. Very nice stuff !

7.4
Appearance - 8 | Aroma - 8 | Flavor - 7 | Texture - 7 | Overall - 7

Pours a rather clear blonde, medium sized white head. Scent is creamy, tad grassy hops, fruity (stonefruit) , under or even unripe treefruit. Lime (without the acidic part). Very green/ spice forward hop. Taste is full, harsh bitterness, tad soapy though -bit unbalanced. Belgian yeast isn't as prominently present ( even hidden) as expected. Harsh green character by the hops - not as balanced as I had hoped. Very raw hoppyness, not as smooth and creamy as anticipated.

7.8
Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 8 | Flavor - 8 | Texture - 8 | Overall - 7.5

Pours clear, darker blonde to amber. medium sized, medium stable white head. Scent is full on hops, bit piney, dense and mature (not old though) hoparoma - a bit woody. I mean this as not as soda-like as some of the newer, NE style of hops tend to be. Quite enjoyable ! Taste is full, piny, bitter, clean and crisp. A milder WC style of hoppyness. Medium body and carbo. As a WC style (If I may be so free to call it that) , this is fairly medium, a bit mineral as well - but as a european IPA anno 2022 , this stands out - in a good way - against all the NE goodness we've been overpoiled with.

Pours black, small tanned head. Scent is sharp, vibrant fruityness - not really matching the stout base to me. Dull and old, aged fruit (grandma's closet) Taste is full, roasty, chocolate, mild charr, stale fruit - oxidated peach. Amaretto-like finish (almond). Another dessert bites the sink :/
