3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Light and frothy, more like a porter. Smooth malt, mild roastiness. Faint trace of something herbal. Dry malty finish. Goes down easy enough but it’s such a simple beer it defies easy description!
