Bottle: Thanks to Maarten for this one:
A nice half liter bottle with a small label on the lower side; elegant.
The pour from the bottle is clear brown. When it’s in my Duvel glass the beer manifests itself with a medium sized ashy creamy dusty colored head which stays on the beer for quite a while with it’s vast texture. The color this beer shows itself to be is murky dark brown.
Aroma’s of hair, carbo gass, caramel, barleys, autumnal herbs, liquorice wood, herbal hoppy grass notes.
Flavours of malts, caramel, sprinkle of brown sugars, raisin, bitter, spicy, a light sprinkle of something sour ish, herbs and herby bitters, some darker spices, hint of prunes, chalk, liquorice wood, toast and bread.
The aftertaste excists of bitters, toast, darker fruits and spices/herbs and some yeast.
Medium carbo, creamy light spicy and tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.
This beer is pretty decent, bit of a strange smell and nothing deep and ordinairy but drinks easy and has a nice bitterness.
