Bottle at Doerak. Dark brown with big off white head. Sweet malts, cocoa, soft coffee notes, light herbs and some marzipan. Quite sweet with light herbal bitter finish. Sweet without too much character, but not bad.

Beardbeerman (251) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a very dark amber topped by about a finger of creamy tanned head showgin great lacing. The nose is smoky, earthy, nutty with some hints of leather. The earthy hops are fairly present. The taste is medium sweet toffee with a smoky/burnt backbone. Medium body with dense carbonation, strong mineral elements lead the finish with a baking soda feature on the tongue. Cheers!

GSAP (568) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Aroma is rokerig met melkchocolade en licht kruidig. Smaak is prima in balans van chocolade, suikers, wat peper en ander kruid, rozijnen en koffie met toffeecream. Donker met beige kraag die lang blijft.
