alethol (102) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Draft at Borefts 2013. Disappointing. No where near the orginal. Pitch black with small head. Roasted malts, honey, vanilla. Misses carbo and therefore liveliness.

flip_soeperman (598) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
The original Bracia beer is much better. As there is a shitload of vanilla in the beginning of the taste, the complexity is overwhelmed and the beer loses it great original quality and becomes quite one note.
