4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Dark brown with very big tanned head. It’s not easy to open this beer without spoiling the half of it on the floor. Nose : rich notes of burned malts with dominating black chocolate, dairy, toffee, cheese and nuts. Some honey and flower notes. Sip : medium body with cream like texture. Low carbonation. It’s a sweet beer with quite distinguished cocoa flavor. Got some other flavors balanced in like burned malts, toffee and honey. The alcohol content is warming. Ending is mostely sweet, burned and a bit earthy dry but dominated by black chocolate like feeling. The beer is quite delicious. I even hate it more that I lost half of it on the floor.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle picked up at Dranken Geers,Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Barry & Lynns, Wednesday 28th January 2015 Pours black with a huge foamy light beige head. Wonderful bitter chocolate, its very good the dark cocoa excellent, its malt laden/heavy there is a gentle warmth, its a lovely rich and smooth beer, a tad one dimensional perhaps but who cares on this occasion and particularly when it is as good as this.
