UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to Kermis @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 75 cl. Bottle sampled. Nr. 181. Black, looks flat, almost no tanned head. Nose is roasted, mellow mocha, touch vinous, chocolate, hint dark fruits & liquorish,… Taste is bitter roast, slick vinous, bitter chocolate, liquorish, sugar thick, bitter herbs, quite simple, pure coffee, flat coffee, hint sour, bitter finish, quite simple, coffee ground,… Flat, meh. Below par, flat messy RIS, heavily overpriced. Glad to try one of their beers but this is not worth it.
