Tried this in the original Gollem in Amsterdam at the weekend. Both sweet and spicey notes on the nose. Dark beer with slight red tints and a thin but persistent head. Sweet slightly raisiney start finishes with a subtle astringency. A newish brew by Jopen as part of a collaboration. Very impressive, hope there is more to come from this collacoration.

Bottle. Dark nearly black colour with small head. Pours a bit sticky. As i opend the bottle i smelled asian aromas like soy sauce and sesame oil and was quite surprised. It starts quite sweetish with malty tones. Exotic fruits in the body. Really nice. This would match perfectly an asian dish. Caramel, fruit, kind of spicy tones. Really well balanced.
