3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Bierkönig. Pours a clear, dark brown - almost black - with a reddish hue and a dense, creamy, beige head that leaves some lacing. Lovely aroma of licorice and coffee - and I even detect a whiff of Brett?? Fairly light in body with hard roasted malt accents and some sweetish licorice flavours. Subdued bitterness. But soft and pleasant. 120108

A Mes rate:
Draught @ Bruxellensis. Black body, tan head, as it should be. Nice alcoholic notes with plenty dark malt and liquorice. Coffee, nuts and chocolate put in an appearance too. Maybe just a little to sweet but it is wiped away by the finish.
