Bottle. [thank you skortila/caesar]
Pours deep mahogany brown with red edges. Fine, small, creamy, off-white head on top. Sweet aroma, good raisins and plums feel. Some rye bread and berries as well. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour has initially quite a lot of dark, dry chocolate, good fruitiness still prevails. A little vinious trace of the 7,5%. A dry, lightly chocolatey finish. Nice.

Another above average beer from Texels.
