3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Saw it being installed. Through bourbon and cognac chips and hops. I get the bourbon the most, something acidic almost but nice. Liquorice and coffee. Nice! At the Botermarkt Beerfestival.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam, Nov ’12
Black color, small head. Mild roasted malt aroma, with some sourness. The body is thinner than expected, some roasted malt, good chocolate, too much sourness.
Unstylish, but not bad.
