3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A very murky brown with a small film head. Powerful aroma. Sweet, raisins, dark caramel, some distant chocolate or cocoa. Quite light body - surprisingly so! Flavour is ominated by liqourice and a roasted bitterness with some vanilla and chocolate as well. Disappointing taste compare to aroma.

Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, 1.90 Euro, Nov. 2006.
