4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An almost clear brown colored beer, with a big beige head. It stays for a long time. A great aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. A great taste, little sweet with some bitter chocolate. A complex, but well balanced flavour. The chocolate stays in your mouth for a long time. A beautiful great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
ZBF 08. Cloudy brown pour with ruby highlights and a medium tan head. Very pleasant aroma of burnt caramel, candy, chocolate and fruits. The flavor is good but not as interesting as the aroma, I found burnt caramel, chocolate, candy and bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and moderate carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2008-03-01. Dark brown body with a foamy beige tan head. (3+) Rich sweet dark fruit aroma is a touch muted by the cold temperature initially. Brief cola note that I may have imagined. Alcohol grows as it warms. (7+) Similar character in the flavour, sweet malt with highlights of sugars and dark fruit. (7+) Smooth average palate could be thicker but is nice.
On tap at Zythos Festival, St. Niklaas
