3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
70 cl Bottle. Yeast in bottom. Very black colour with a good looking brown head, but fast diappearing. Not much aroma, but very smooth and notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and roasted barley. Big fine taste of chokolate, liquerish and burned corn, it’s all ends up in a dry and bitter aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aproaching blackness! No head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt and liquorice. Creamy almost cloying mouthful. Taste is liquorice and bitter cocoa. Some sweetness, but the dry bitterness in the end is killing my tastebuds! To quote my friend from Delft is is sticky and chalky! I know this brew is appreciated by a lot of people, but I just really don’t like it!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 (Bottle 70 cl) Version 1: Bottle #2737. This is the original 2001 vintage of this beer at 6,5% ABV.
Pitch black, opaque beer with a creamy, brownish head. Starts creamy, greasy almost cream-like. Some sweetness quickly relieved by a dry, coffeeish bitterness. Very sophisticated brew with 4 different malts, cocoa, chocolate and English licorice. In many ways a great beer. 240901
(Bottle 70) Version 2 - vintage 2003. More chocolate, less licorice. 7/4/7/3/14=3,5 130603
