Bottle at home. Shared with @Meilby. Thanks!!! - Poured a clear dark with a fair brown head. Smells of coffee and delicious darkness. Tastes oily, balanced and slightly sweet with a slight bitterness at the end. This is excellent.

ShivanDragon (2254) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
26-12-2014, verjaardagsbiertje.
schenkt zwart met volle fijne schuimige bruine kraag. Aroma is prima ondanks het feit dat ik wat verkouden aan het worden ben, volmoutig, chocolade en alcohol, prima !.
Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig/redelijk bitter (mij iets aan de te bittere kant voor zo’n bier), sterke smaken, stevig gemout (geroosterde en gebrande mouten), volle chocolade, mocca, volle body, romig van textuur in de mond en blijft na een tijdje gewoon van de zoetigheid aan je lippen plakken. koffie zorgt voor de droge tonen in de mond. In de afdronk komen de koffie droogte en het bittertje ook weer terug. Mooi en goed bier, maar niet zo super als ik gehoopt had (komt door de iets te bittere smaken).
