3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bottle from 12 1/2 years of ’t Arendsnest party. Very dark, practically black. Has short head, and overall the looks are what one usually expects with a stout. Smell has very very much chocolate/cocoa. And the first sip is full of chocolate plus sharpness of alcohol. After a moment the other aromas appear and they are from yeast; basement, leather and such. Texture is oily and there carbonation is on minimal level. Finish is rather long.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg", supplied by Biernavigatie. Poured a clear murky dark brown with a thin white head. The aroma is big sweet chocolate, roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter/sweet with a smooth nettle hop palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation. Loved the chocolate aroma but things went a little downhill after that. Still a great beer for me though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a clear, dark brown beer with a small, beige head. The aroma is very chocolatey, in a milk chocolate way. Toffee too. Really sweet on the palate, but there’s also bitterness, and quite a lot of cloves. Some coffee. It’s full-bodied and sweet on the palate, borderline sticky. Lasting chocolate and coffee finish with a lot of cloves. It has a quite lovely aroma this one, but it’s way, way too clove-like. 140301
