Intensive aroma and flavor. One of the best among other La Trouffette brand. Still has this quite strange funky wood and juniper like taste behind. Apart that dominating aromas are chocolate and dried fruits with a decent flowery hop bite. Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden.

Bastogne’s second, with yellowish white head and rusty brown colour. Aroma of overripe fruits, cocoa powder, leather, nuts, coffee grounds; earthy taste, candied fruits with spicy accents on a caramelly and somewhat nutty malt base, drying and becoming more yeasty towards the finish with a bitterish tail.

Een donker bier waar veel te weinig smaak aan is, normaal zijn de donkere bieren goed en vol van smaak, deze niet.
