3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stubby bottle brought home from the pub in Hoegaarden. Pours coffee brown with very little in the way of head. Sweet, malty flavour. Somewhat oily mouthfeel with a decent burn from the 10 % alc, but at the same time a watery finish. Sweet, but not much else. Disappointing.

Pours very dark, chocolate brown. Good and stable white head. Smell is chocolatty, mildly sweet, some earth, and some spice notes. Taste is bit sweet, some chocolate, some dark, roasty malts. easy drinkable MF and carbo. Well in balance. Mild bitter backbone, as well as grainyness. Spark of alcohol. Way to drinkable in general for the ABV. Lovely beer ! indeed way better than its blonde brother.
