3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml. bottle sampled. Purchased @ ABC Beers. Pours blackish dark brown with little in the way of head. Sweet candy nose, cannot pin down a name though, cuberdons maybe?, lots of delicious sugary cany, caramel,… Taste is sadly more umami than the nose, mix of candy, soy sauce, molasses, herbal, lots of thick liquorish,… Thick liquorish body. Too much umami & liquorish to fully work for me but I still liked it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black body, creamy head, looks good! Toasty malts, burned sugar, some coffee perhaps. Pecan nuts. Served a bit cold, but still quite luscious and sweet. Wintery, yes, but not overly satisfying for some reason. It’s nice. (On tap at ’t Proeflokaal Delft)
