Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown in colour with a short lived tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma with a touch of leafy hops. Flavour had more roasted malts and chlorate before a dry finish with a hoppy kick. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam, 03.03.12 consumed at home 04.03.12 Pours black or at the very least extremely dark brown with a light beige head. At first I wasn’t so keen, coming after the Schans Bierkoning Labelles Chocolade Stout the lack of chocolate and sour fruitiness did little to endear me but after a while it grew on me. Fruity with a good tangy sourness, some chocolate touches but not so many, good roastiness and a little harsh dark bitter chocolate. good beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque nutty brown with a light brown head. Fruity aroma, a little yeasty with a hint of roast. Medium body, hard bitter roast, very chocolatey and distinctly Belgian in style - I believe it’s the roast. Hard roast finish. 260911
