Lukaduke (3009) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a nice mahogany burnt umber color with a big billowing khaki foam that takes a moment to settle before finishing the pour. Nose is roasty with layers of licorice, tar, some hints of dark fruit and spent coffee grounds. Texture is creamy but the high carbonation keep it from being to full bodied. Nice food stout and another great De Dolle offering that Im finally getting around to rating !

Skvader (130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2016
Opaque brown to black with a medium thick dissipating foam. Aroma is semi-sweet, metal, milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing with medium to low carb. Taste is sweet and roasted, going on towards a pleasant belgian yeast hint with raisins or dried apricot. Gives a refreshing start, a poignant centre and a vintage-like finish.
