Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübs bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, nussig, Karamell, Gewürze, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

Brandman (2612) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Very special vegetable aroma. Flavour is bit dark and crispy. Bit over tuned maltiness with some strange flavour - castagne?

tricksta_p (2923) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a murky amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, chestnut, spices. Flavour is much the same, subtle sweetness. Overall a bit on the thin side, but I enjoyed my bottle. Speaking of bottles, I really appreciate the presentation this brewery has chosen for its beers.

Martinus (4350) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2013
Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of malts, nuts, quite fruity, light herbal notes. Sweet flavour, chestnut, mint and some nutty notes. Finish liquorice, laurierdrop and brown sugar. Decent brew!
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

Bottle. Amber body, good sized white head. Thick and nice body for the strength. Aroma of caramel, hops, nuts. Taste is sweet, brownies, grass, toasted malt, flowery biscuit ending. Not among Borgos most exciting beers but absolutely a drinkable one.
