75 cl bottle (8%) @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 2017
Lots of foam when pouring. Aroma is quite light with cocoa and hints of sugar. Rather foamy palate. Flavour is dry and somewhat sour with some roasted notes and hints of coffee. Quite typical Belgian stout, the cocoa or alcohol are hardly observable.
