3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle, courtesy of bierkoning, thanks Edo! Dark brown color. Beige/light brown head with short retention. Aroma’s: sweet malts, herbs & spices, some red fruit. Additionally some roast retronasal. Flavor is suddenly rather bitter with a malty sweet backbone. Body is a bit thin. Finishes (herbal) bitter, a bit earthy. Not fully balanced, but OK.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown color. Caramel and chichory in the somewhat milky aroma. Milky roasty flavor with hints of fresh cheese and dark chocolate. Chichory bitter aftertaste. Odd but likeable mix of an abbey double and a milk stout.
