Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2011
Very dark brown, a reddish shine at the light, with a good sized head, but won’t stay very long that good. Dark fruits, malts and spices. Caramel. The taste isn’t to bad, but a bit simple. Slightly hops, malted, herbs, sweet caramel. Slightly some dry earthyness gets trough at the end.
