3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5L bottle brought home from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of latte head, quickly shrinking to a ring of tiny bubbles. Body is the darkest brown with a reddish hue. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked roasted nuts. Feels quite unrefined and solventy on the nose, actually. Hints of brown sugar and peppery dark malts. Taste is sweet malty, bordering on harsh. Moderately roasted with a sourish tone. Notes of wood and licorice. Alcohol is noticable. Mid-bodied. Sharp, light astringent mouthfeel. Sourish and peppery malt finish. Goes well down, but a bit edgy and unrefined. Will probably improve with cellaring.

14th December 2010. At the Euston Tap with Harrisoni. Incredible label on this beer - made me gasp and laugh out loud. Very controversial but I like it’s subversive attitude towards the Monks! Anyway the beer - Clear dark brown beer, no head. Softish dry palate. Sweetish Belgian Strong style beer. Coca Cola and some fruit and bubblegum sweetness. Dry finish with a sublte pinch of spice. Not bad but not my favourite Beer Here beer!
