Bottle. Strong smell of syrup, a little bit coffee. The medium large head is brown and has a long duration. The body is nearly black. The taste has a normal long duration and is a little bit bitter and malty. The texture is light oily, quite dry and creamy with normal carbonation and a medium body. The finish is light alcoholic. A nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
300ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Sweet dark berries in the aroma, malty too. Massively malty taste, very rich and full, parts are grainy and nutty. Some malt loaf even. No signs of booze. Very nice go-to beer - should come in bigger bottles ;-).
