3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: The most peaty beer I’ve ever had. That simple. A fun beer.
How: Tap at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam
The look: Black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is very peaty, some earthy forest floor, a bit smoky. Taste is peat, more peat and then some more peat. Also plenty of burnt malts providing a harsh roastiness, some cacao powder and a cigarette butt sensation. This is probably the most peaty beer I have ever had. I enjoyed it because it was so over the top in a different way, but in all honesty it wouldn’t be something I would enjoy so much if beers like that were to become commonplace. This was like drinking slightly smoked earthy peat. Quite enjoyable because it pushes the ‘peat’ character to the maximum. This beer is to peaty beer what a Shlenkerla is to smoked beers. I liked it and for what it’s worth my wife absolutely loved it. My last beer of the night in Amsterdam, then it was time for the walk back to the hotel. And even if they don’t make drunk-staggering an Olympic sport soon I will not regret the rigorous training I’ve put myself through.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost black bodied, with an enormous head that generates brown floaties. Stroopsoldaatjes (Dutch carmael and butter candy)... Rich sweet toffee, caramel, dried figs, coffee beans, palm sugar and a hint of alcohol. Sweet, full taste, with a proper bitterness at the back. Oily mouth feel, with some fruity notes. A proper dessert beer! Well made. (33cl bottle, fairly priced)
