Bottle from Potje Bier, thanks! Almost black and opague. Lactose, milk chocolate and roast in the aroma. Thinnish, almost watery. Licorice and roast in the milky sweet flavor. Some most welcome sour notes. Well balanced. Surprisingly good!

33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Color is as good as black. Beige head with only a small layer retention. Aroma’s of roasted malts, lactose, with tones of chocolate and ground coffee, a little bit of vanilla (actually one of the ingredients). Flavor is only lightly sweet, roasted, chocolate. Body is not too thin considering the 4.5% ABV. Finishes roasted and lightly bitter. Nice one.

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. New brewery, like Oedipus also from Beer Temple staff. Black colour, dense creamy beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, hard roasted malts, light dirt, hint of cheese. Flavour is medium sweet, hard roasted malts, bitter chocolate, light fruity sweetness, light milky, bitter finish with some moccha. Medium-bodied, especially considering ABV, creamy mouthfeel. Well-made, hope their future beers will be equally enjoyable.
