330 ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy dark amber. Weird woody aroma, with some pledge-alike/beewax notes, brown sugar ("kinnekessuiker"). Medium body with lots of sugar but the watery base cannot be hidden. Slight bitter finish. Taste of nuts, slight figs, lots of bready malts.

Pour from a bottle at La Tana in Brussels. This was from the chef’s private stock, as apparently he knows the White Pony people pretty well. Smooth, caramel, toffee, no hint of booze.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Barely Legal Tasting Room .
Pours brown, with an amber glow. Steady and thick foam, but small . Smell is sweet grain ( intense ) , A bitter aspect .
Taste is grainy, sweet, copper, leaves . Caramel touch, some earthy aspects . Very nice, and comparable to some of my favourite WP’s , but less intense ( also less alcohol ) . Still its 10 % , so it should be more intense, especially cause what you do taste , tastes very nice !
Nice mouthfeel, perfect carbo . Easy drinkable - as to be expected from Roberto
