4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Yesterday at the opening of
the "farm brewers". This new ’Koekelaring’ version has a Red-brown color, with a big creamy head. Medium body.
Taste is little sour, malty, some bitterness. A very good creation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Having won the open BLES championship for amateur brewers, this beer was brewed once at the 2000 L scale by De Graal. 33 cl bottle, bottled Sep 05. Murky, chocolate coloured with a chestnut shine. The head is small and creamy and laces well. Aroma: chocolate (malt), earthy (hop), a bit of rubber, a hint of cherries. The taste is malty - with lots of dark malts, bitter - but not hoppy, rather coffee and even burnt chicory; same in the aftertaste. A dense and teasing palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 First version brewed at De Graal Fully dark beer; head reduced to very white rim in seconds. Spicey nose with parsley, nutmeg, cinnamon and dark malts. Dark bitterish and roasted malts taste, moccha, and quite some spices, but this time blending in so identification quite difficult. Gingerbread-like, garden herbs. Very well-bodied, good carbonation. Nice, this one, one expects it spicey-sweet, but turning out more bitter & herbal.
