TrefwoordPunk (800) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark brown with a medium tan head and an aroma of dark malts, toffee, overripe fruits, spices and candy sugar. The taste is pretty sweet, with some malty and spicey notes and a tad of bitterness in the finish. A pretty replacable beer, but not bad.

Bottle as "double port" stable fluffy head, hazy dark brown colour, aroma of dark bread, caramel and chocolate cake, flavour of dark fruits, dark bitter chocolate, dark bread and caramel, quite sweet but mellow and not cloying, very smooth and easy to sip, suprisingly light for a 9% brew, excellent with grilled entrecote. Highly enjoyable

Bottle as Double Port. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head that quickly shrinks to a thin layer. Aroma: dark fruits, bread, brown sugar. Taste: blue grapes, plums, elderberries, raisins, chocolate, caramel, hints of nuts and wood. Sweet (in a ripe dark fruit way), silky smooth, full bodied with a long honey finish with a slight tannin bitterness. Yum!
