3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Towering huge cream-beige head, dense, slowly disappearing over near-black beer. Powerful dark malts aromas, with green leaves, herbs, cypress. Very dry-smoky flavour, ashes, dusty, with just a bit malty sweetness in the finish. Some liquorice. Medium to well-bodied, grist slickness, discreet alcohol. Nose pure Walloon dark ale, taste is much more (sweetish) stout-like, if more perfumed than most. Easily the best from De Vlier so far.
