COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2010
Op tap @ de molen. Pitch black pour with a very thick creamy tan head, leaving huge amounts of lacing. Aroma of butterscotch, bourbon, leather, cream, caramel, some coffee and roasted malts. The flavor is amazing, a bitter explosion of coffee, dark malts, caramel, some faint cognac, a hint of peat, bourbon, leather... everything is in there and remains lingering for ever after. Very full bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Amazing brew.
