Ruikt lekker, smaakt lichtgebrand. Geen sterke bittere afdronk, en niet te zoet, das prettig. De smaak begint een beetje vlak, maar wordt later een stuk voller zonder dat het te wordt. Erg nice

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very dark black in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, cold coffee and sea-salty chocolatey notes in aroma at first. As it gets a bit warmer some new aspects arise in the form of some burnt wood, well actually more like some smokey notes one would say, you also get some licorice later on. Dark bitter chocolate and notes of coffee in taste. Bit on the dry side from hops it feels like, hints of bitterness too. Something sharp in the taste, but otherwise it’s a good brew. Cocoa and roasted malty notes in aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Commissioned by a Dutch beer company exploiting a mobile little brewery, this stout shows a beige head and all-black colour, a smokey and toasted aroma of charcoal, peat, smoked meat, black coffee and gin, and an ashy, dry taste with a smoky and chocolatey hint, a bit of warming alcohol in the finish and a certain ’syrupyness’. Good winter warmer, but not very accessible and only suitable for true stout lovers.
