bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Bottle as Monk’s Christmas from the Arden BevMo in Sacramento, CA. Pours ruddy dark brown with a fine off-white head. Smells rather sweet and roasty. Med body. Flavor is rather light, and not that sweet. The description says Landbier, and I think that’s suggestive. There’s something herby holding back the sweet. Drinks very pleasantly.

bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, cacao and milk chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with caramel and cacao, the hides the presence of a limited amount of flowery hops. Really liked this one.
