3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33 cl bottle from Casa Evaristo; BBD: 09/14) Pours black with huge, frothy tan head that has good retention and lace. Aroma is chocolate with notes of herbal hops. Fizzy carbonation with slick texture, medium body and an astringent finish. Flavour is lightly bitter with a touch of carbonation. Too carbonated for my taste.

On tap @ ’t Klooster. Mostly foam from tap, took multiple glasses and some time to end up with a somewhat decent looking beer. Dark with a tan head. Strange aroma of coffee, chocolate and spices. Taste is bitter, hints of coffee and chocolate as well. Reminds me of a dry-hopped stout. Nice, should definitely try this again someday.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with very huge, frothy to macropore, fully lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, a grainy coffee note, cautious cocoa overtones. Taste is minimally sourish, dry and roasty dark malty, subtle sweetness, dry hints of cocoa and coffee, bitter hoppy overtones; (way too) fizzy carbonation, minimally sticky finish. Really nice taste, sadly not fully accessible due to overcarbonation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home, 330 ml, poured into a snifter. ABV 9%
Huge dark brown head on top, becoming bigger and bigger till almost comes out of the glass, Thick too, excellent retention although with that size less could be also okay as it took me quite long until I taste the beer. Totally black colour on the body.
Aroma mostly of coffee, light grass, very appealing.
Taste of coffee, roasted coffee beans, cocoa and cocoa based bitterness, traces of hops.
Medium body, quite carbonated, at least at first, mellows when left to breathe a bit. Sticky on the palate but also a nice dryness present.
Overall very good, great sipper.
