Balazs (787) - Den Haag, - APR 20, 2010
Bottle at home. Poured black with a foamy tan head that reduced to lacing quickly. Nice deep ruby spots in bright light. Nose is strong plum, dark chocolate and fruits. Aroma is chocolate, raisin, plum, light roasted hints and just a drop of vanilla. Dense, oily, creamy body with little carbonation. Very nice slighty dry, bitter aftertaste, but the creamy texture in the palate sticks around. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall a very nice brew, with many year of experience behind it. Smooth, easy to drink, complex stout, enjoyed it very much.
