(Bottle, from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam) Black colour with lasting, creamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong sweet black coffee, dark chocolate, treacle, cacao and hints of oak wood. Malty, roasted, fruity taste with strong black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, cacao, treacle, hints of cognac and a generous coffee/cacao bitterness in the finish. Full body, smooth and velvety mouthfeel. A certain sweetness coming through. A bit sweeter than the original H&V. Lots of taste, and all in exceptional balance. Excellent beer!

Tick number 200, got this in a trade with BenH - thanks to you I can have this epic beer at a rating milestone! Pours deep black with a minimal tan colour head which soon fizzes away. Aroma is sweet molasses then my nostrils were stung by the Cognac which was then followed by rich dark chocolate and coffee hints. Taste is initially spicy cognac which is then followed by sweet candi sugar and some creme brulee. Full bodied with a slick mouthfeel.
