3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at Arendsnest on 5 April 2011. My first beer from this new brewery and, overall, a quite promising effort. Very dark colour. Good coffee & chocolate in the aroma. There’s just a hint of cooked vegetable which I sometimes liken to baked beans too. Some roast coffee in the flavour. Quite creamy, but dry mouthfeel. Looking forward to trying some more beers from this brewer.

(Bottle, De Spuyt, Amsterdam, 1 March 2014) Black colour with rocky, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, chocolate, mocha, a touch of cinnamon and cocoa. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, cocoa, dark bread and a fairly dry finish with a generous coffee bitterness. More than medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced stout. Nice one.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Near black and opaque with an off-white head. Plain chocolate, dark fruit aroma with decent roastiness. Flavour of coffee, more chocolate, with a touch of sweetness on the tongue and a dry, toasty finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle at Arend’s Nest. Black pour with bubbly off white head. Chocolate and coffee in aroma with a certain yeastiness. Flavor is initially chocolate the a strong coffee kick. A slight sour dryness spoils it overall.
