Draft at the source. Very dark brown color, beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder, coffee grounds, light spice. Taste is sweet and lightly spiced nutella. My favorite of the evening.

VSOP de Pelgrim: On tap at Pothuiske, Maastricht.
Cloudy dark brown beer with a superb creamy tan light beige head. At the first slip the aromaa is moderated. After a while it opens with án interesting character. Wood and oak in the nose, cocoa and tartness with a balance of light dark fruits. The flavor continues the experience. More cocoa, more tart and wood that stays on the tongue, light belgian yeast fruitiness in the background. Earth, cocoa and oak in the aftertaste.

mutz (601) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2011
Donker bier van de tap. Er valt weinig te ruiken maar de smaak is heel apart. Vanille, verbrand hout, rokerig. Goede rokerige nasmaak.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2011
Geur is niet de sterkste kant, maar dat kan ook de lichte verkoudheid doen. Smaak is zachte vanille met een rokerige, turfachtige nasmaak; wat koffie tonen ook. Erg plezierig in de mond. Van de tap @ de Roeëje Lieuw.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2011
A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts and hop. The taste is sparkled hoppy with dark malts and fruits with coffee. The aftertaste is gentle dark roasted malt with some coffee. When the beer gets warmer a good balance.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2011
On tap @ De Paas. Dark, almost red coloured beer with a tanned head. Aroma of wine, port, oak, roasted malts and later on we smelled coffee as well. Flavour is incredibly full. The wine flavour comes back in the beginning, followed by the roast and then some coffee or dark chocolate. This is great stuff.. too bad it’s from Rotterdam :P

dEnk (3806) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2011
Draft @ de paas. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, spices and a nice oak character. Flavour is deep caramel, some spices and a big shot of roast, almost like an imperial stout.

On tap at Wildeman. Nice dark red body with slight head. Nose is wooden, oaky, vanilla and sweet. Taste is similar, of wood, vanilla and toffee. Quite nice with sweet, bitter and syrupy finish.
