3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, clear reddish brown hue with creamy white head, minimal lacing, caramel, chocolate malt smell, watery to syrup texture, very minimal carbonation, tastes like the smell, don’t love the style or the brewer but this is a decent effort, a little too lit and sweet, malty aftertaste, I’m sure someone loves this, not me though

Als je het uit schenkt krijg je bijna geen schuim. De geur is wel lekker. De smaak valt best mee. Geen top bier, maar het valt goed mee

Dark brown pour with thin off white head. Smells of toffee and moderately strong alcohol. Taste is smoky and feel is smooth but not light in mouth and has a mildly bitter finish. Just okay, drinkable but won't buy again

Transfer from BA review on 10-7-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a mahogany-brown colored brew with a two finger cream colored head. The head fades fast to a medium cap that persists. Once the cap fades rather slowly a light level of lacing is left on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt smell. Mixed with these are notes of chocolate and a coffee aroma. Some sweet caramel joins the darker aromas and with a light bitter herbal aroma rounds out the smell.
Taste – A roasted malt and chocolate flavor greet the tongue. Some light coffee flavors are present as well but are gone rather fast as some molasses sweetness more toward the middle of the taste comes to fruition. While the taste sweetness in the middle, it ends up bittering more toward the end as some of the bitter herbal hop flavors detected in the nose come to the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the average side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that was a little bit on the higher side. Not the best for the roasted and darker flavors, and may have been better suited with a creamier and chewier body.
Overall – I am not really a huge fan. The flavors never really meld well and the transitions are quite abrupt.
