Hazy slightly orange with a tiny white short lasting head. Sweet malty aroma with loads of spices. Flavour was quite spicy with malty notes and perfurme. Finished sweet.

A very nice and tastfull mushroom beer. You taste the strength of the beer. Only to bad that it is no longer made for the moment. Still have an old bottle for tasting

Fairly aged sample, discontinued for some time now, it seems. What the way of making was, has always been a big question. According to BES, Proef was involved Very dark brown, but with ruby shine; dark brown-yellow head, dwindling. Rich molasses nose, liquorice, some oxidation, portwine-like. Heavy, nearly burnt taste, overtaking the sweetness to roasted, syrupy concentrate. There’s a taste which MIGHT be mushrooms - or anything else, probably vegetable. Very heavy, syrupy mouthfeel, treacle or soy-sauce like. Yet it is fairly highly carbonated. Aftertaste is like ketjap, with a dash of port. Weird beer - don’t know what to think about it. Certainly not my preferred taste. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn something (mushrooms and caramel syrup) have been added to existing beer, and then boiled.
