Pours a dark, dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, chocolate, roasted malts... just overall delicious. The taste, however... is dominated by alcohol. Not my thing. It’s really a shame, because this beer was so promising.

PotjeBier (2556) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
From bottle at a tasting @ Bor’s, with Borresteijn, Zlotta, Markoijelena, Adamnowek, Skortila, MarcodL and Harmen. Bottled 12/15. Almost black color, but not quite opaque. Beige head. Aroma’s: from the glass not so much actually, light alcohol, weird. Retronasal it’s quite the opposite: sweet, alcohol, light bourbon, vanilla, oak. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasty, a bit alcohol. Medium bodied. Long finish, but no new flavors. Nice after all.

skortila (5132) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Bottle tasted @ Bor’s place. The aroma has light roast, light chocolate, bit bourbon. The aroma is quite weak unfortunately. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste has sweet chocolate, bit roast, bit coffee and bourbon. Taste is definately better/stronger than the aroma. Good overall.

Zlotta (1550) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Sampled from bottle at Borresteijn’s place. Clear, very dark red to black with a light brown head. Sweetish, minimally roasty, slightly boozy aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate, some coffee and hints of licorice. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of chocolate, some coffee, hazelnut, vanilla and some licorice, followed by a long, slightly bitter, moderately warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!
