I can’t help it, but in my opinion this is a decent addition to the normal Straffe Hendrik beers. One to drink again next time I’ll in Bruges or something.

Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has a lot of oak coming through with some notes of caramel and candied sugar and just a bit of the Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly sweet and woody, and drinks super smooth. Really a beer you should sip and enjoy.

Bella scoperta!! Bottiglia del 2013. Aroma dato dalla fermentazione in botte di rovere molto gradevole. Al palato appare molto dolce (vaniglia, frutti rossi, caramello e zucchero). Bel equilibrio. Ottima
