3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is yeast, malt and treacle. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich liqourice, sweet fruit, yeast, malt and alcoholic palate. The alcohol is well controlled for 8.5% and it was certainly a rich and heart warming beer. I liked this. One of the better beers from Hillegom.
