3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent June 2013 consumed at home in company of Casey & Traci 06.07.13 Pours black with dark brown head, looks good. The nose is a good combination of vanilla and coffee with a goodly dollop of cream and chocolate or milky, creamy chocolate to be more precise. Whilst I like this beer and whilst I like the vanilla, maybe the vanilla is deployed just a little too heavily here, nice but a little overkill. I think the strength is very well masked I really didn’t believe it was that strong. Good beer, very good in fact, smooth, indulgent and really tasty, just not quite great. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours totally black with a small, diminishing brown head. The aroma
is full of vanilla with some milky chocolate notes, an impression of rhubarb and custard. The flavour is sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweet dark malt, with a long finish of roast malt and hard roasted coffee. Thick body. Possibly a love or hate beer--I’m a lover.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Simonsen
Pours dark, black in glass, thin tanned head. Smell of coffee, ice cream,dark malts and vanilla. Medium sweet, mocca coffee, vanilla, playful with a touch of chocolate. Finishes off with a moderate bitter tail of coffee. I had very high expectations, so it was a bit of a letdown on me. Still, i have to say this is a damn good beer.
