Bottle at the RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Poured a cloudy dark brown with a frothy white head. The flavour is medium bitter, dry and with some roasted malt and coffee. Drinkable but not one that I would track down to buy.

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Brown pour with loads of sediment, foamy tan head. Aroma of bready yeast, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, creamy and with spices. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, creamy and with a smooth texture. Lively carbonation. Well drinkable, but more like a dark dubbel than a porter.

Countbeer (4748) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Hazy brown pour. Medium sized vast and slowly changing beige tan colored foamy head on top of a muddy deep deep dark dark red brown colored beer. Aromas of manure, coffee, roast, yeast, chalk and a light sour touch in the nose. Flavours of bitters, iron, roast, herbs, dried berries, paper, some clay, a little warmth, barley and coffee roast. There’s a teeny tiny sour touch to it Bit thin an dry but the roast is good represented. Aftertaste is a mix of roast, bitters, some dryness, nuts and some floral tones. Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Quite thin but not boring.
