Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Almost pitch black, very dark brown opaque colored with a beige head. Smell smoke and hops. Taste smoke and hops but combined it smell a bit like kids’ fingerpaint: not very nice. The hops are nice but I dislike the smoke in combination with it. Decent carbonation, medium body. Cheers to Jan and Charlotte, very nice to have shared this with you!
