3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled @ PINT Winterbierfestival Gouda 2013. Opaque, almost pitch black color, small beige head. Smell roasted malts, lots and lots of coffee, dark chocolate and moccha. Taste is basically the same with some warming alcohol in the finish. Not bad, but you gotta like the heavy coffee flavor.

Tap at Winterbierfestival. Gouda: Opaque black brew with the sublime taste of coffee. It likes more an ice coffee, than a Stout.
