TrefwoordPunk (820) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours pitch black with a medium head and a sourish coffeeish aroma. The flavor is sweet, like a cold coffee with sugar-syrup and some sparkling bubbles. Nice roasted coffee, but too sweet for me.

Purchased at the Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. A pleasant, full bodied stout. The aroma has lots of roasted malt. A black beer, with a short brown head. Flavor is more roasted malt, a little unprocessed grain, some coffee. Excellent smooth palate.

Thank you kindly, JK! Black color with no head. Aroma and taste are both dominated by excellently roasted malt and coffee. Slightly bitter finish. Excellent!
