750ml Bottle from Bierkompass!
Slight Gusher! Pours deep brown/black with very dark brown head, that is very soapy and disappeared within seconds! Many big particles float into the beer. Smell is very sweet, slight musty, smells like some kind of stinky cheese. Starts with disgusting roasty-cheesy aromas, paired with some musty roasted malts. Finish has lots of stinky cheese and some musty milk chocolate. What a shame about the 6,99€! Sorry Mr. Olivier, but this beer is defenitely undrinkable!!! WUUUAAAAAAAH!!!

Thanks to sebletitje for sharing at RBBSG II. Pours a hazy dark brown with weird loose brown head. Smell is milk chocolate, fruit, weird sour yogurt. Taste follows the nose ending dry. Body is medium with very course and active carbonation. Awful...something went terribly wrong with this beer.

75cl from DM shop, wtf is this beer? and how can a company even sell this for that price? Beer opened with huge chunks of god knows what mold-like of yeast or lactose. Mediocre carbonation with soda-like profile and head that vanishes in no time. Couleur soda, avec un léger doré au verre. Arôme a ce bouquet rappelant le beurre avec ce rétro-nasal lactique bcp trop présent relevé par qcq notes d’avoine. Palais est trop pétillant avec ce côté café au lait, impression de soda suivi d’une note sucrée de mélasse avec une pointe de fruité noir. Malt caramel-chocolaté très moyen.

Big bottle from De Molen online shop. Quite a gusher, all over the kitchen sink. Once settled it was a dark black pour with a quickly disappearing head. But quite a bit of stuff remains on top. Quite funky. Nose is quite sour and medicinal. Pretty rank. Taste is thankfully more robust in the beginning with quick taste of chocolate and malts, but then gets oily in texture and quite sour and milky. Kind of a thin weird finish. Not for me at all.

750 ml bottle, poured into a Guinness pint glass at home. ABV 3.5%. Bottled on Sept. 11, 2012. Fully filled bottle, some big chunks of whey visible on top. Pours a black coloured beer, with big bubbles on the surface instead of head, that most of them burst straight away. Finally, a couple of brown and yellow bubbles stay on top for quite long. It looks a bit disgusting to be honest. Aroma of sweet milk and chocolate, not that bad, but there is also a smell of burnt paper on the background. Very weird taste, I don’t remember having drunk anything similar. I can’t decide if it’s a good or a bad taste, also difficult to describe it. Very wide rage of flavours that includes everything, it begins sweet as a good milk stout, then becomes salty and bitter at the same time, only to end up with a sweet/sour flavour, with emphasis on the sour. There is a faint chocolate taste, but also a cheesy one. I certainly hope that this comes from the whey that is now on top of my glass and that the next glass will taste better. Quite carbonated, medium to full body. Tart feeling on the palate. Overall, interesting beer, but it seems it’s not for me.

Borresteijn (4542) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2013
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, big brown bubbles in the pour, dissipating fast to no head, loads of yellow/beige chunks. Aroma is sweet, milk chocolate, coffee, hard roasted malts, some sweet spices, rivella. Flavour is sweet, whey, roasted malts, coffee/moccha, milk chocolate, light bitter finish. Taste becomes cloying after a while. Lots of carbonation, very fizzy, but not really disturbing.
