3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, tannish head over black beer with brown lining. End of bottle fully yeast-filled. Strong roasted nose with outspoken ureum aromas, and drying grass. Coffee, hints at spirit. Again very roasted with roasted barley sourish imprint, finish being sweetish-bitter. Peppery character, lots of roasted coffeebeans. Bitter chocolate retronasal, carrying a long-lasting roastiness into the aftertaste, with much alcoholwarming. Velvety-rich, viscous feel. Pretty well-balanced for such an outspoken beer. Many thanks to Kees!
