Kastanjebruin, nevelig. Dichte, beige kraag die lang aanwezig blijft. Aroma van gebrande mouten, caramel, chocolade, framboos. Nog behoorlijk fris. Smaak is behoorlijk zoet, medium bitter met een zicht licht fruitig zuurtje. Mooi in balans, hoewel het een beetje kunstmatig aandoet. Voelt wat dun aan in de mond, maar wel een behoorlijke body. Medium co2. Lekker!

Zlotta (1337) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
On tap at ’Café Hesp’. Clear, very dark reddish brown with a large, creamy, almost stable, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, some vinegar, nuts and hints of wood. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, raisins, vinegar, nuts, blackberries and some wood, followed by a short, slightly bitter, minimally woody finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, but also intended to be like that?

On tap at Café Hesp, tfs Jan! Dark ruby brown colour, pillowy beige head. Aroma of rancid butter, diacetyl, light sourness, raisins. Smells like the first beer of the day from the tap line. Flavour of dark malts, dark fruits, raisins, butyric acid, light cocoa. Medium bodied. Could be nice, but bad handling screwed it.
