Gioiellino olandese, con un corpo denso e oleoso. Nel gusto troviamo cioccolato, caffé, un pervasivo sapore acidulo di oliva che gli conferisce una sfumatura leggermente vinosa. Nel complesso ricca e golosa.

In fles 33cl. Mooie donkere kleur. Slappe schuimkop. Smaakbeleving is wederom voor mij niet goed. Sorry rooie dop maar mijn smaak past niet bij jullie bieren. Gootsteen :(

Bottle - Dark roast, bitter sweet chocolate and a bit of liquorice. Jet black with a light brown head. Burnt malts, molasses and and hoppy bitterness. The burnt/bitterness is a bit much for me.

Aroma: Light chocolate, coffee, and sweet roasty caramel and toffee like notes.
Taste: coffee and some liquorice notes with a bit of chocolat. Not as sweet as it smells. Some yeast and in the addition the alcohol does show true.
Lowi cabonation and thin body,. oily texture
A bit unbalanced as a whole. Some things seem to be missing.off a bit to much to be really good.

Black with a gigantic creamy dark-coffee head. This beer actually gazered on me a bit when I opened it, but I think it was just that the cap was on very tightly and I had to really yank it off. Aroma roasty and sweet, dark caramel, chocolate, vinous, alcoholic. Taste of roast and espresso, dark bitter chocolate, burnt toast, and ash, Not nearly as sweet as aroma would suggest. Palate warming and very roasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Almost black with a small, quickly fading, big-bubbly, beige head. Strongly malty nose with oatmeal sourness, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee. Flavor is roasted and lightly charcoaly, but there’s also sweetness to balance. Quite bitter, charcoaly, black coffee finish. Medium to full body, slightly watery, lowish CO2. A bit too thin and burned for my taste, even though the oat does bring some softness along. 3446
