3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear chestnut body, with a fine off white head; Very little fine aroma; Very ordinary simple but refreshing body with a special fine carbonation; Medium long finish with actually a little hop apparent. The finish is the only interesting part of this beer, the rest is simply to boring. No wonder most people where drinking it with a red syrup.

On tap at the monastry. Aroma of uncooked hops and yoghurt. Light brown color, beige head, good lace. Bitter, roasted malts, carboard, nasty bitter finish. Strange brew. What hops did they use? Didn’t like it at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Small, but stable beige head, leaving some lace. Darker amber than this is usually known as black. Fresh, light hops nose. Once again, a vegetable bit - like the Buxus in the blonde, but less obvious than in that one. Some dry malt and hopstaste as the blonde, but the real dark malts enhance the bitterness just that little bit to give it a real malt character without excess sweet. Dry, even dry-out effect. Another very well-balanced beer, good and reviving.
