3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the 16th Essen Christmas beer festival (2010): drank the day before my new friends Brabander and Beerpirates arrived at the fest (the draught ran out, hence they had the bottled version to review). The one and only barrel available being matured for one year before being breeched for the festival.
Pours a really dark reddy brown, almost black in colour, the head a mid tan.
The smell was a pleasant mix of liquorice and ground coffee.
The liquorice dominated the taste, it’s flavours overcoming even the sweet molasses and bitter coffee taste that didn’t show up until the mouth began to dry. The alcohol content well hidden behind the strenght of flavours wasn’t noticeable until the very end of each sip.
Pleasant, but not brilliant.
