Bottle 33cl. A black but clear ale with medium carbonation. Aroma is very sweet and caramel like, and toasty. Nice bitterness and grassy hop flavour. Good beer, a bit difficult to digest, near to a Pelforth brune.

Coca cola colored, little light brown head. Caramelly sweet aroma with thin chocolate and licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor is similar with caramel and licorice, not very personal one. Aftertaste has thin alcohol with somd weird black currant tone.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Blauwershof, Godwaersvelde - Joris’s leftovers - thanks. Dark brown. Smells of soap and wood. Cardboardy. Oxidised woody flavour. Sweetish. Some liquorice on the finish. Seems old but it isn’t. Not an enjoyable experience. No idea what style it is.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium cream-brown head on reddish, Coca-Cola coloured beer. Vanilla-sweetish nose, nutty, slighlty oxydized malts. Sweet-molasses & dark candi sugar. Sweet (if not too), but obviously oxydized sample, although well before BBD. Nutty, "biscuit" flavours. Milk chocolate, almonds & liquorice warming up. Soft, creamy, texture; despite the 6.3 % I seem to get some warming. Sweet, and obviously prematurely aged sample. Then again, Kronenbourg...
