3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Very dark brown with cream head. This is initially quite sweet, there is a fruit cake character, with raisins / sultana notes. The darkly roasted malts show through, chocolate roasted, full and tasty with just a bitter edge. Overall a well brewed beer with lots of depth. Good stuff.
