In de nacht wordt karakter belangrijker dan uiterlijk. De Tumulus Nera is een karaktervol bier, zwart als de nacht! Dit volmout tarwebier dankt zijn natuurlijke zwarte kleur uitsluitend aan gebrande mouten. Ontdek de mysterieuze mix van donkere chocolade en koffie in deze excentrieke Belgische stout. Carpe Noctum!

Ambro206 (360) - ITALY - MAY 15, 2016
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival: Una buona stout dal colore scuro impenetrabile. Aromi di cioccolato e caffè. Buon bilanciamento lungo tutta la bevuta. Un filo troppo di carbonatazione.

Very very nice. Almost like it’s smoked, though I believe it’s not. Very ful mouth feel. Deicious.

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2016
Flaska från demolenbeershop. Riktigt mörkt brun med lågt beige skum som snart försvinner. Doft av kraftig rostad malt, kaffe, choklad, lite tjära. Krftfull smak men väldigt väl balanserad. Stora ganska kärva smaker av tjära, torv, kaffe choklad möter en lätt sötma med lite lakrits, honung och mörkt bröd som mynnar ut i en torr men inte särskilt besk avslutning. Gediget och riktigt gott.

Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Malt, roast, raisin and caramel in the aroma. Malty sweet roasty alcoholic flavor with chocolate and ash. Well made beer.

rdb84 (558) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2015
Coffee appearance, gentle carbo, stable head. A: fruity coffee aroma, rye, vanilla, cherry bonbon, smokey wood note, nice blend. T: velvety smooth, starts a bit boozy with cherry and wood note. Gentle bitterness, mocha. Aftertaste reveals strong coffee taste, vanilla and biscuit notes. Full body. Good stuff.

erickok (5400) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2015
Brown body, very large head. Typical dubbel aromas of burned sugar, roast, very sticky fruit. Sweet but not too much, still leaves some room for malt character and the alcohol is dimmed enough. Only the ending is a bit too cloying. Nice strong Belgian dark ale,but still too sweet in the end (literally and figuratively). (33cl bottle at De Blauwe Kat during Leuven house visiting)
