2011 vintage on draft at Klooster, Delf. Pours near black with a thick beige head. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and light heavy bitter. Red and dark fruits coming out in the palate and adding some acidity balancing against the sweetness. Thick mouthfeel. Full bodied with light carbonation.

flip_soeperman (586) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2013
Quite an interesting beer. The aroma and taste has a balanced sourness. Furthermore it has the character of a stout with roasted and coffee notes. Quite a nice fine bubbled dark beer. Quite interesting, but not my favorite

Albe (56) - ITALY - JAN 10, 2013
Almost dark color, with a fully diminishing off-white head. Aroma delivers roasted malty notes, red fruits, some chocolate and coffee, and many spices. Taste is sweet, and lightly bitter at the beginning, also with a light alcoholic feeling. The body is complex and full, interesting for a "meditation" night with friends.

Opaque dark brown beer, light tan head. Light palate, semi soft and semi dry. Nice dark malts - a little creamy. Very light touches of roast and smoke. Subtle fruits underneath. Semi dry finish. Easy going Porter.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2012
Bottled. More or less black colour with a mediumsized beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, spices and some mild coffeeish notes as well. Flavour is quite spicy with mild roasted malts as well as some alcohol, and quite strong bitterness. Rather strange, but at the same time well bodied.
