Bottle @ BBF. hazy amber orange, small tanned head.
Aroma has malt, hops, liquorice, some smoke and caramel.

Bottle at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Very round and smooth. Quite sweet and with a nice malt base. The alcohol is however too much on this one and makes the finish very boozy. Still a very decent brew.
