2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Borefts 2011. Not much aroma. Almost black colour, seems muddy. The flavour starts off with a burnt plastic note, burnt rubber or whatever. Turns sweetish and roasted. Perhaps a hint of fruit. Seems like a decent beer, but the plastic is a bit of a turn-off.

Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Pitch black, opaque color. Weird head: half vast, half fluffy off-white to light brown colored. Smell is weak, just slightly hoppy. Taste medium bitter, some hops, some roastyness. Medium carbo, medium to full body.
