Very dark, coffee color - full rich body - staying head - effervescent nose - soft velvet feeling in the mouth - luscious. Malt character with a hoppy aftertouch. Monks used to fast on this type of beer for 40 days! No food, only beer.

Bottle shared from the source. Nice picture of the horse palace on the label which reminds me of my walk to work at my last company. Not sure if that’s a good association to start with or not.. The beer itself is a hazy amber brown with a medium light tan head. Aroma is vegetal with big herbal notes, yeast, compost, light dark fruits and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Inoven (231) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2016
Diep donkerbruin helder bier met beige schuimkraag die redelijk snel weg trekt. Weinig aroma. Smaak licht bitter met in de verte een beetje caramel. Ietsje houtig in de nasmaak.

Flogiston (6) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2016 does not count
Deze dubbel bij de Lidl gekocht, samen met een tripel en ander bier van de van Steenberge brouwerij, en vermoed een lagere kwaliteit dan wat doorgaans in de winkel ligt. Geur is erg muf, wat gelukkig niet in de smaak terugkomt. Uiterlijk is prima in orde overigens. Ben van plan om ’m nog eens te proberen via een andere winkel, om te kijken of mijn gevoel klopt. Het ’merk’ wordt ook als etiketbier gebruikt.

dark brown-mahogany colour, medium sized beige-ish head; aroma of dried fruits like raisin, figs and maybe some plum, as well, biscuit, hints of chocolate and alcohol; taste is the same though not that harmonic and intensive than the aroma; correct dubbel
