2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
brown to dark with a beige head. dark malts, hint of (bread) yeast. taste is malt, bit of moccha. finish is dry, bitter, pretty straight forward through the corridor. Is this a 10% beer? where have they hidden the alcohol ? It is ok, but heavy to drink, and it is limited in complexity and dito flavors.

Bottle @benzai. Almost the same as the previous one. A quadrupel marketed as a stout. It’s not even black. It’ dark copper maybe. You can taste the alcohol, it’s very sweet, not roasty. Not my beer.

anekdote: my friend walks into the souvenir shop and buys the bottle of beer. He knows a lot of beer things through me. The cashier tells him: "it’s a good beer, but you should know, it is not brewed here in Limburg". To which my friend answered: "Let me guess: Lochristi?". Cashier (very surprised): "How do you know???" :-)
