3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Kaapse Brouwers. I’ll qualify this rating by noting I was able to try the beer, although it was the last glass of the fust, with lots of yeast and residuals, resulting in a very murky, sluggish appearance. Nose is sweet mocha, bit of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, mocha. Quite some yeast bitterness and grittyness, which I wont take into account. Underneath there is a lovely balanced mocha beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Stas. Brown with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, a bit "green", roast and a bit of nuts. Sweetish flavor, a bit bitterish, with coffee, malt, a caramel note, a nutty hint, a tobacco touch and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Good.
