Half proefglaasje op de 24 uurs van Maastricht. Zwarte kleur, goede kraag. Ruikt en smaakt hemels. Complex, cognac, whiskey, hout. Heel goed.

Deep dark beer with creamy brown head. The creamy roasted flavor is thick and carry the vanilla bourbon softly. Very enjoyable.

nimbleprop (6661) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Little 18cl bottle pours an oily, translucent deep brown, basically no head. Nose has wet wood, burnt wood, a little mushroom, some German chocolate cake. Flavor is chocolate, watery coffee, earthy tree bark, cola, vanilla. Finishes watery, but it is a bit old. Just a bit too far gone.

Svesse (7510) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2015
(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!
