Dark brown body with an average, frothy, tan head, mostly diminishing with some lacing though.
Moderate malty aroma (roasted) with complex notes of red fruits (cherry), chocolate, coffee, maybe light raisins.
Moderate-to-heavy sweet flavour, balanced with a moderate bitter character; bitterness becomes more evident in the finish.
Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl, BBE 04/2015. Pours black in color with a frothy tan head. The initial notes were some smokyness which turned into some sweetish licorice, burnt coffee beans and light herbal notes in aroma. There are also some dark fruityness present here, for instance a bit like not that ripe plums. Slightly burnt coffee and herbal notes in taste. A bit light perhaps, but still this is quite nicely packed with both aroma and flavor considering the low abv. Soft and smooth mouthfeel nonetheless. Later on there appears some smokyness and hints of saltyness in aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby red, almost black, with a thick, creamy tan head. Aroma is a little fruity but mostly malt and alcohol. Taste has a hint of coffee with a smooth finish, almost sweet on the back end. Leaves a slick finish on the palate. Not at all what I expected, but still darn good.
