MrHangover (3236) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, tea like colour with a small beige head. Aroma is full of malts, caramel, madeira. Flavour is quite sweet and a bit alcoholic, but again backed up by strong malty base. Even carries a bit of a hoppy bite in the end of the flavour. Long lasting, bittersweet aftertaste. Nice in balance and a great sipper!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Bottle @ home. Aroma is very deep and malty, some caramel, slight roasted malt, some bread and hops. Flavour is thick and malty with a nice hop bitterness, also some bready roasty bitterness and loads more of sweet malty notes. Some alcohol burn in the finish. Very nice.

33cl bottle, BB 12/2013 bought at Emelisse biershop. Cuivrée, rubis, col épais, crémeux collant au verre, beige café au lait. Arôme est fruité noir, sucre candi avec un houblon épicé presque sur les herbes de montagne, malt pâle avec un rappel à la réglisse. Palais garde me^me avec une bouteille de plus d’un an un profil bien herbacé avec une amertume qui perdure ne fin de bouche. Note aussi ce côté fruité noir de prune voire date qui se note en parallèle à un palais restant doux sucré collant aux lèvres presque de sirop et une fini légèremetn épicé.

Pure class! Beautiful aroma of coffee, grass, red berries and several other things. Taste of licorice and a perfect level of bitterness. Lovely-looking too.
