3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap at pre-ZBF. Aroma is dense herbal coffee. Light caramelish roasted note. Solid and overload coffee in the flavour. Light sweetness and espresso like bitterness. Dark malty and coffee flavoured into the finish. Too much coffee for me, this is more espresso than beer - good in a very small sample for a dessert.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and oil. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, wood, and a bit of rum, leading to a dry, roasted coffee, and woody finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from Struise Beershop). Quite much pitch black colour with reddish brown fluffy longlasting head. Some slight lace. Aroma is ashes, strong black coffee, some chililike burning notes as well as some wood and alcohol. Mild tobacco as well. Flavour is roasted malts, ashes, some alcohol, mild stinging sweetness, some wood as well as mild notes of soap and burnt wet wood. Also some slight chililike burning notes in there. Good sipping beer, but a bit too sweet for my likes. Also I’m quite amazed to find the palate a bit thin, even though the beer is full with flavours and aromas.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, thanks Baggio! Very black, small beige head. Evident coffee aroma. Mid dry, more slimmed and vinous than expected, but huge on espresso. Also the bitterness is milder than expected. A potent winter wamer that remains drinkable. Well done!
