kraddel (4946) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle. pours dark, unclear brown. Small to OK white head. Smell is mildly sweet, somewhat metallic, and not intence overall. Taste is much dark grains, and the aroma that goes with it. Surprisingly different ! Notes of chocolate, earth, some fine bitterness. Taste is complex, and different. Elegant, in a way, but perhaps it should be more intense, outspoken, Body is to the light side, as you’d expect this to be a 8 % beer given the taste. Rather high, but still OK carbo. Very different than the rather low expectations.
