DutchDrebus (3792) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle @ Borefts ’13 thx to Illuvatarmilan (if I spelled that correctly). Pitch black coloured beer with a full sized, dark brown head (which looks lovely). Smells some iron, roasty and coffee. Tastes coffee, again iron, liquorice, slightly salty and roasty. I’m not a fan of liquorice taste in beer, but this beer does it quite nicely. Medium to full body and soft carbo.
