SVD (2026) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017
Bottle at home, black beer, small head. Aroma is malt, roast, coffee, chocolate, hint of coconut, Taste is the same, bitter, some sweetness, ok not bad jjsint (3186) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle from 2017 Cambridge Beer Festival. Very dark brown, slightly translucent. A fair bit of visible carbonation but not a lot of head. Sweet coconut and vanilla aroma with a little chocolate malt. Taste is a bit too sweet for me, but to be fair it is balanced with a nice bitter note in the finish. Quite tasty indeed, although I normally like a little more character for the ABV. jfb (6331) - GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
