jmgreenuk (4771) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at WWT3. Poured a hazy dark brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is rich alcoholic and resinous, dry and a little earthy. The flavour is medium bitter, earthy, weak liqourice and not much else apart from the alcohol. Great to taste.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - DEC 18, 2012
25.11.12. Bottle. Large amount of foam, quite compact, leaves thick lacing, mocha-colored. Clear, dark brown beer. Aroma is sugar, a bit of coffee, vinous, hint of sourness, strong dark sugar. Reminds me of Grimbergen Optimo Bruno, which is a very bad thing. Flavor is quite sweet, sourness that reminds me of Aardmonnik (not as strong). Again hints of the same Grimbergen. Alcohol is well hidden, I guess. Mouthfeel a bit foamy. Aftertaste malty and slightly sour.

Overall a different beer. The nasty sweet and sour combo that reminds me of Optimo Bruno is enough to make me dislike this one.
