Fles gedeeld met lachneger en peltmeister. Donker bruin bier, vol met gist. Inschenken is een lust voor het oog. Aroma van koffie, licht rokerig en laurier. Smaak is zacht, vol zoet, dropperig, zacht bitter. Aanrader.

Fles gekocht @Melgers in Haarlem. Schenkt een mooi zwart bier met een lichte cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s van gebrande mout, gedroogd fruit. Smaken van gebrande mout, gedroogd fruit, vanille, hop. In de mond is hij zacht en olie-achtig, een heerlijke IRS dus.

reebtogi (5192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and licorice with some roasted grains. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with the licorice notes and a roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness. Medium to heavy bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a well crafted stout that must be sampled. I appreciated every sip of this beauty.

A black beer, a head is small and light brown. Aroma has liquirice, sweetness of berries and some salt liquirice and meat. Taste has salt liquirice, some roastiness and sourness. Almost full bodied, low carbonation, slightly sticky. Simple and salt liquirice IS, no notes of unique Sorachi Ace. Good.
