3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
As all the beers by Ramses, very well balanced. It has a nice smell of malt and fried prunes. Initially it has a taste of bittersweet freshness. The sweet and fresh passes by and a dark bitter note like raw cocoa remains. Later the molasses-like sweet notes rise up again from below. The experience develops as time passes, very nice. A good stout.

Bottle. [thanks Jos & Cees]
Light muddy dark brown with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has astringent malts, roasted, raisins, chocolate, coffee and mild herbal notes. Medium carbonation, lovely fat and creamy palate. Complex flavour, good coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla notes, some sharp herbal dryness. Cocoa-nibs and more dryness. Lingering warming finish. Good.

On tap at Arendsnest. Very dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Smooth semi dry palate. Sweet dark malt, no roastiness. Sweet fruit and coca cola make a subtle appearance. Whisper of spice. Really nicely joined up and a bit different.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting little white foam collar which was rough and even of structure. The beer also contained no carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear dark brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a coffee touch . This beer smells to vanilla.
