3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at ZBF 2010 under the name "Zonderink Dubbel Donker".
Cloudy red-brown colour with creamy vanilla coloured head. Berry-ish aroma, and vineous with notes of vanilla, raisins and cocos. Vineous feel in flavour with clear phenols, bit of chocolate and cocos. Slick, medium body. Low bitterness. The flavours sprawls all over and the phenols are bit disturbing as they dominate in the end.
