Sample at Kurtkeller 015: Coffee-tastic 02 on 07/05/2014. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Roast malt, coffee and slight oak in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, malt and subtle fruit. Barrel aging is barely evident. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

On tap. Pours a ruby black red. No head or lacing. Nose is a mix of harsh alcohol and dark fruits. Attack is pleasant but quickly goes off and finishes overly sweet and muddy.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of Vaiz. Probably an infected bottle, hence the low score. Pours a pitch black beer with a small off white head. Aroma is rather sour, malty and has some caramel touches. Flavor however, has a lot of infectious sourness going on. Not really worth a full rating, since it’s probably infected. Still, potential is there.
