3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark reddish brown, beige uneven fluffy head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, red fruits and some dough. Very rich taste, a lot of roasted malts and chocolate again with a lot of coffee, sweeter than what expected. Some hops in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brewed by Jandrain-Jandrenouille? That I expect very high quality stuff. And indeed this turned out great. Not extreme in any way but still full of chocolate, classic herbal yet very present hops, just enough supporting toffee sweetness. I wouldn’t leave this laying around but drink it with the hop presence, it really makes the beer. Very tasty and indeed as expected of high quality, very well developed. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

15cl. at Brassigaume 2013. Pours a black colour with small and tan head. Roasted aroma and medium carbonation. Light and watery body. Flavour is roasted and bitter but with a quite watery finish. Ovarell I was not impressed.
