Yeast flakes are visible when pouring a beautiful head. Lovely. Great aroma of smoke and peat. Earthiness too in the sip. Sticky and maybe a tad too sweet, still a very nice beer.
Bottle from Van Erp Roden.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Speciaal Bier Winkel, Bodegraven
Hazy amber color with small head. Soft but evident peat aroma with light vanilla and very light alcohol, impression of cheese. Full bodied, yet with lean mouthfeel; good malt flavor, with a touch of caramel and toffee, moderately sweet, with strong bitterness, very good alcohol management, and a roasted nuts final.
Clean, powerful (lightly boozy), good.
