AVERAGE SCORE 3

Reviewed by Bruno Rygseck 1/29/2007

COLOR BEFORE WATER 0/10
Horrible, between dark purple and dark blue.

LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
Slow and weak, the color turned even worse.

COLOR AFTER WATER 0/10
It isn't even gimmicky enough to score more than zero.
Stains your sink when sinked, keep detergent at hand.

AROMA 2/30
Before water, there is actually a weak lemon-balmy note plus some from anise, but
its odor is mainly that of strong alcohol. After water it becomes weaker.

MOUTH-FEEL 0/10
Like oily sand.

TASTE 1/20
It does have some anise taste but not much else.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 0/10
Bottled octopus vomit with lemon balm scent.

PERSONAL NOTES
One minibottle from a package of three. Bought from Spain in November 2006.

Bruno Rygseck scores Tunel Black 3 out of 100

I almost feel sorry for you for trying that one o.O

"Bottled octopus vomit with lemon balm scent."

This forces me to take back anything I've ever said about being willing to try anything unique, at least once.

good lord... makes me very glad my friend gave me a sample of the Tunel green, not the black. Not that it didn't suck, but at least it didn't stain the sink.

I don't recall it being crunchy.

Sounds about right.

So, apparently you find KoSG preferable, then?
Bruno Rygseck
KoS has better color, I have got a mini bottle of it, too. But zero is the lowest, or are negative points allowed? Tunel Black did not contain the vegetable snack on the other hand. Just thinking of that possibility makes me want to :projectile-vomit:

So, 3 out of 100 was a bit harsh. But so was the liquid.
hartsmar
Well, KoS has a good enough color, a promising aroma at first and... well, I guess that's it. The Tunel Black has neither.
