3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 50 cl bottle in duvel glass.. nice thick and creamy head. Roasted malt, bread, sourdough, butterscotch, caramel in the nose. Hoppy taste and there are nice tones of chocolate and coffee. A bit watery taste, a roasted and burnt feel to it, long finish. It is ok, but why take this when you have so many other better ones. Cheers.

Black with a large beige head. The beer tasted just burned and weird, do not really know what was wrong. Probably the beer was infected, could not finish it.
