A fine companion to end a meal or relax in front of the hearth with, this robust ale will cellar well for years. Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley this stout is extremely smooth, complex and rich in body. We recommend serving at cellar temperature. Sit back and enjoy its richness and complexity, you’re about to drink the ultimate winter warmer.

Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2016
Pours oily black and deep tan head that clings on. A riot of flavour with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and even some date. The strength of flavour is needed as the alcohol looms ever present. Truly an iron fist in a velvet glove. Long sweet warm tingly finish. Founders have done it again.

Zlotta (1912) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2016
0.355 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in November 2015. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, dark brown head. Sweetish, moderately roasty aroma of mocca, pralines, toasted nuts, vanilla, cocoa and hints of raisins. Sweet, rather roasty taste of mocca, pralines, cocoa, some licorice and vanilla, followed by a long, firm roasty-bitter, quite warming and burning finish. Full body, very creamy and viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Massive beer, close to perfection. Very intense, great mouthfeel, satisfying and moreish finish. Hard to beat without barrel-aging.
