Negra, con una buena capa de espuma marrón que desaparece lentamente.
Aroma a torrefacto, ciruelas pasas, algo de oporto y un toque ácido.
Buen cuerpo, oleosa y bien gasificada.
En boca chocolate amargo con final licoroso. Muy buena.

Wauw, this beer is powerful! It’s very bitter (that’s what I like) and you can compare it with dark chocolate of 80% cacao and coffee. It also contains a little bit of soy in the taste, which realy completes this beer.

Drank with Tijs, Thierry and Rik at home 21-12-2014. Beer has lots of carbonation. Taste is fairly one dimensional, dark like coffee and chocolate. Taste is fine but not that comprehensive or rich.

Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.
