Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is dark brown to black colored and pours a stable cream colored head, with nice carbonation. First thing well smelling the aroma is fresh baked bread, but also a nice sweetness of caramel and bitterness of cacao and coffee. A little stout like. The taste is light sweet and malty with caramel notes which evolvs into a nice bitterness with coffee and cacao notes. Well balance between aroma and taste. The finish is dry and light bitter. Very good brew
