Smell has some wine alcohol notes. Otherwise it’s rich and sweet.
Appears coffee-black with almost no foam at all.
Palate is quite light in a plesent way a bit coffee like.
I would drink it again soon.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. @ home. 33cl sample. The aroma has caramel, vanilla, sambuca/bitterkoekjes. Nice. Dark brown coloured beer with an off-white-beige, thin head.The taste is very sweet, boozy and has caramel, biscuit, raisin, some grape. Very alcoholic afterburn. Seems they really like that at Honsebrouck. Pitty, because the flavours in this beer are interesting and pleasant.
