Brune très sombre, gros collet de grosses bulles.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (750ml) at home bought in DeKoninck Vichte. Poured well with a small head that disappeared quickly. Very malty aroma and taste, but overall it’s like a hardcore version of the normal buffalo stout.
