3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am really enjoying this. Very good baltic porter and probably the best Kluim Duimpje beer I have had. It has the things you would expect: coffee, chocolate and liquorice and even mint in the finish. It tapers of into a watery mess in the finish of the finish. Yet very nice. Bottle at the 12 Balcken in Den Burg.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Mahogany brown pour, not quite opaque. Disappointing aroma - stale coffee grounds, tiny bit of cocoa. Slightly thin in mouth. Drinking chocolate, light coffee, no hop, slight roast - alcohol well hidden, along with everything else! A bit disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a frothy off white head. Low carbonation and didn’t gush! Amazing. The aroma is dry Belgain yeast with some roasted malts and dark fruits, dark chocolate, weak coffee and liqourice. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a medium bodied liqourice bitter palate and a short bitter finish.

Poured dark brown with a huge beige head. Aroma of fudge, lactose, chocolate, coffee and toasted malt (but all quite muted). Medium to full body, flavour of coffee grinds, bitter milk chocolate with a dry, lingering finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at In De Wildeman. Pours a hazy dark brown with a grayish coffee brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of sweet dark grains and sweet chocolate with just a touch of acidity from coffee. Flavor starts with dark grains as well as a bit of bitter chocolate and finishes with a touch of coffee. A bit thin.

Had this at De Drie Donstge Herten, Utrecht, Netherlands, Saturday 28th September 2013 Pours black, actually very dark brown with a nice light beige head. Soft in mouth, cocoa powder, some light coffee its very nice and surprisingly easy drinking for a 9% beer. Aroma has all the aforementioned usual suspects along with a little beefy oxo. Like this.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours black with an auburn tinge, a small, latte-colored head. Aroma is roasted, liquorice, salty and otherwise. Some dark fruits, caramel and yeast. Taste is roasted, quite a hit of coffee, light wooden flavors. Light grapefruit on the finish along with yeast and salty liquorice. Too light with a lot of carbonation. Too little with so much alcohol and hype.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at De Bierkoning, I think. It opens with an audible ’pop’ but only starts its oozing-style gush after a couple minutes. It pours deep brown with a large, frothy tan head. The aroma has notes of milk chocolate, burnt wood, restrained roast, dark bread. Medium to big sweet flavor with lightly bittersweet cocoa, subtle earthy bitterness, not-so-subtle boozy kick, some coffee grounds. Full bodied with average to lively and somewhat creamy carbonation. Warm to hot alcohol in the finish, more semi-bittersweet baking cocoa, understated roasted malts, light gooey mocha, some dirt, faint espresso. OK. A bit heavy handed.
