Sampled 75 cl. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival 2011: beautifully wrapped bottle, this looks quite impressive – apparently limited to 300 bottles – bottled in April 2011: A: black with a mocha head – S: coffee, dark malts, bitter chocolate & cognac – T: cognac, syrup, dark malts, cold coffee, winter spices, touch sweet pureed dark fruits, booze aftertaste – frankly this is a tuned down version of the regular one & not a boost – B: closing on thick, full definitely, low carb – nice but the regular version is much nicer
