A great stout with an astringent bitter after taste. A hint of licorice. Tried this beer with Erol and Anouk at the Pilsner Club near the Spui in Amsterdam.

Bottle from De Bierkonning, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 01.10.11 consumed at home w/c 10.10.11 Pours black, this is soft in the mouth with a middling coffeeness going on. Nicely bitter and roasty in equal measures. Sorry for the poor rating as I was cooking at the time and trying to do to many things at once, including drink and rate my beer. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Pitch black with light brown head as stouts usual come. Smells very malty. Taste is soft and not too alcoholic. There’s sweet malts. Aroma is perhaps bread/roast with a bit of dough. Palate is quite nice, not too flat but not fizzy drink either. Body is pretty thick. I only wish this would have more complex aroma.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2011
From bottle at De Pilsener Club, Amsterdam on 9 April 2011. Very dark brown colour with a generous tan head.. Not quite opaque. Dry with plenty of powdery chocolate and some burnt malt notes. Firm mouthfeel with a slightly prickly carbonation. Straightforward but satisfying. Very enjoyable and extremely drinkable. And I can’t really think of a better place to drink a recreation of a very old beer.
