Borresteijn (5320) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pitch black colour, thick mocha brown head. Aroma is awesome, lots of hard-roasted malts, coffee beans, bitter chocolate, some chocolate-covered berries, some fudge. Flavour is of a classic stout, but much richer, lots of roasted malts, coffee beans, coffee and cream, chocolate, it’s all very silky and lush. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Excellent stout.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
Deep black colour, brown head. Nose is very surprising with cherry, coffee, licorice and I felt hints of roasted pistachios... Taste very frontal, quite bitter, not too strong on the alcohol content. A very beautiful stout. Buxton is really one of my favourite breweries in the UK...
