Countbeer (4825) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass; Medium to bigger sized thick and very slow changing creamy beige foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aroma has loads of roast with a light liquorice and herbal edge and a sprinkle of citrussy tones. The flavour is very roasty too. Thereís also a nice bitterness and decent tones of coffee and liquorice. Just a slight tint of something hoppy/herbal. This could easily be a stout. Quite fresh though. The aftertaste is medium bitter (bit like coffee bitter) with tones of herbs, coffee, some crispy plant ish tones and some hay toast. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture. On one hand itís quite a simple beer which is not really complicated (this is not a must at all) and on the other hand itís simplicity makes it easy drinkable and enjoyable. More like a stout beer but thereís this fresh hoppy/citrus tone which takes this beer out of the stout corner. Quite nice!

Really smooth, silky texture. Aroma and taste have green, fresh hops and slight roast malt. Has a level of alcohol and balance of flavour which makes it worthy of repeating.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 Appearance: very dark brown allmost black color with a off-white compact head. Aroma: hops, roasted malts and some coffee. Taste: Quite roasted, some pine and grapefruits hops, but itís a bit too roasted vs the hoppyness unlike the aroma. Clearly traces of coal in the dry finish. It starts with liqorice notes and coffee bitter, then some hops before it finishes dry bitterness with some herbal tones Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle @ benzai. After the beer was served into the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive off-white foam colour which was fine amd even of structure. The beer is brown btw. Smells coffee, roasty, chocolate and a nice amount of hops. Smells like a great black ipa. Tastes roasty, coffee, slightly liquorice, bitter and some hops. Could use more hops, but itís a nice beer. Medium body, great carbo.
