caesar (5119) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle (no. 38 of 2592) shared by Benzai @ Van Moll Brewpub, served in a taster glass. Dark brown color, short frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, mocha, chocolate, some coffee, slight biscuity malts, bit whisky. Medium sweet in taste, slight bitter, chocolate. Creamy texture. Not as liquoricy as some other RIS, but more velvety and smooth, which I like.
