4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. A more or less black one, topped by a dense, finger-thick dark beige to light tan head. The aroma has a solid dose of port, with roasted malts, coffee notes, a little alcohol and some hoppy notes. Or is it something else than hops? Lightly salty on the palate, full-bodied, soft and with some warmth. Coffee, port, bitterness and dark chocolate. Lasting finish with roasted malts and salty licorice. Some soy notes too. Liquid joy. 120804

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 9/VIII/13 -37.5cl bottle @ De Hopduvel - BB: 2025- batch 245 (2013-704) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy deep brown beer, some beige to brown bubbles, but not really a head. Aroma: some bubble gum (fruity) on pouring, then sugary, caramel, alcohol, dried fruits, candied orange peel, dark chocolate. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body, slick texture. Taste: very sourish start, bit unpleasant, vinous, sour red wine, tannins, coffee, stale bread, banana peel, a bit salty even. Aftertaste: overripe banana’s, mocha, dark caramel, some overripe fruits, bit sugary, salty touch, dry coffee ending. Pretty weird, and I guess I don’t like the red wine / port character too much.
