Bottled 355ml. -at Pivoteka Zagreb. Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, light roasty and whiff of green apple in the nose (wtf, green apple...all three of us noticed it). Sweet roasted malt, chocolate, noticable alcohol and tar like finish. Touch of licorice as well. Too boozy stuff.

rodenbach99 (4155) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Style et résumé: Superbe porter imperial.
Comment: En fût au Saint-Bock finale Euro 2016.
Portrait: Une robe brune foncée presque noire avec une mousse collante beige. Un nez de mélasse, d’outils en bonbon, iodé, fumé et presque oxydé comme un xeres Pedro Ximenez. Une bouche ronde et enveloppante, une douce carasse pour le palais. Des saveurs intenses de caramel, mélasse, dattes et raisins secs. Superbe.
Note: 8+/10

Very decent, but too high ratings. Not much aroma, very straight forward taste, malty, some woodyness.
