3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - generously offered by fonefan, at the 16th Kerstbierfestival) The beer poured almost black. Its head was small and light brown. Aroma had malts and mildly roastedness. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, roastedness, liquorice, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had liquorice and low bitterness. Tasty beer resembling more a stout that a Belgian strong ale.
