3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Non-wood/barrel aged version, on tap. Good dark brown appearance with lasting head. Well hopped yet to give character to the cacao malt base. Some spices with the same cause, rather than bringing a spice bomb to you. For the abv the body isn’t the fullest, but it drinks very well and not too sweet. Zesty, original recipe, works well enough. (Tilburg Beer Festival)

Sampled draught @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. Blackish, good sized tanned head. Nose is sweet liquorish, coffee, brown sugar, mocha and light roast. Taste is oily bitter syrup, molasses, sticky vines, reasonable amount of liquorish, sweet herbs, light roast. Oily & sticky body. Not what one would expect traditionally but quite enjoyable still.
