MrHangover (2656) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of me. Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned head on top. Aroma is rather peppery, spicy, little vanilla, loads of tobacco, wood. The pepper is also strong represented in the flavor with a light burn in the back. Flavor overal is medium bitter, light sweetness detected, The vanilla is not as present as I hoped it to be. Still an ok beer, very good even, but where is the vanilla.
