COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown Serafijn has a spicey herbal character and a soft bitterness. The Achilles brewery has a unique way of achieving an even heating of the wort: using no direct flame or steam, the wort is pumped through a spiral that sits in a tub of hot water!

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2012
13/02/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Bruna, scura, impenetrabile, schiuma poco abbondante color bianco sporco. Aroma di malto, lieviti, molto speziata, cioccolata, frutti rossi. In bocca è dolce, caramello, ancora un accenno di cioccolato, lieviti, finale appena amarognolo. Non è bilanciatissima, risulta un po’ appiccicaticcia in bocca e stucchevole. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Senza infamia e senza lode.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Don’t like spicy and herbal, but it is indeed present in this beer, though not as much as I feared. The smell is still average and the taste fair, so not that bad.
