3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a deep mahogany with a big frothy creamy tan head. The aroma is of roasted malt and liqourice. The flavour is strong bitter with a liqource, malt, coffee, chocolate and red-berry fruit palate. I kinda liked this. I’m surprised the ratings are not higher.

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.

Tap @ Wormer, small sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of chocolate, quite fruity of blackcurrant, slight spicy and earthy as well, hint of roast. Creamy texture. Slight sweet, slight bitter, bit dry. Very well balanced and a good try on an English stout. Good stuff.
