3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Borefts 2013. A deep dark brown one with a light islandy and sidesticking dark brown head. Smells of woody vanilla chocolate. A bit like home made vanilla chocolate ice cream actually, and I definitely like how that smells. A little bit of sweet dark malts here also. Sharp strong in the taste. A good amount of that woody vanilla found in the aroma. It’s almost lively, well at least above average on the carbonation and it has a light oily mouthfeel. Quite taste, the chocolate lingers in the aftertaste. Zomting I could drink again! 28.09.2013

Bottle BB Nov 2014, into tulip. Black, decent foamy, soapy tan head. Smell - coffee, fairy liquid, lime. Body - medium to light, low carbonation. Taste - coins, hoppy, caramel coffee. Decent hoppy porter, but not as much flavour as I was hoping for.

(bottle, 33cl) Almost black colour with a brown mid-sized foamy head. Moderately roasted malty aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, liquorice and vanilla. Mildly sweet and roasty bitter flavour, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Roasty malt-character upfront with distinctive notes of dark chocolate, coffee and a whiff of dried fruits; bitter-sweet roasty finish with notes of dark chocolate, mocha and a tinge of alcohol in the aftertaste. 20.XII.13

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flasch: Literally black, big and slowly collapsing loose tanned head, leather, liquorice, toasted malt and dried fruits in the nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and very creamy; lingering dry - but not too dry - toasty-fruity finish. Superb stuff, no doubt…
