3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown. Sweet and light roasted malt bouquet. The carbonation lightens mouth feel. A touch of bitterness with a hint of fruitiness. This beer is more like a brown beer than a stout, but not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark color with thin frost. Aroma is not very full, quite light and nothing particular, therefore i was expecting a dull taste. What a surprise at the first sip! Full mouth, malty, no bitterness, roasted, bit of coffee and a strong red frui finish. Awesome surprise!

Clear dark brown turning towards black, highe light brown foam head. some lacing. Aroma is bit hard to specify, not the ususal bunch. Taste is quite nice, some metallic to it, some coffee, some licorice. Interesting beer. (Utrecht 201312)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. BB 11/10/2015. From saveur-biere.com.
Black colour with a small greyish tan head.
Roasted malt, coffee, mild bitterness, mild vanilla sweetness and dark chocolate in the aroma. The flavour is much more delicate... quite nice actually... malt (mildly roasted), marmalade, molasses... very smooth. There’s no bitterness (of the aroma) in the flavour at all. Very drinkable. Really nice surprise.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown with a thick frothy, tan, lacy, lasting head. Smells of nice sweet caramel malt, roast and dark malt, coco with nice woody grain tones. Medium oily frothy body. Tastes of dark and roasted malt without too much bitterness balanced well against a sweet raisin and caramel, toasted malt taste and finishes sort of thin with lingering barley. More of a porter if you ask me. Superbly we’ll balanced and lots of moreishness here. A great beer.
