tricksta_p (3769) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, lots of dark chocolate, powdery cocoa, roasty coffee. Flavour is above moderate sweet and medium roasty bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is a bit much and got annoying especially immediately after pouring the beer. A bit of a shame, because the aroma and flavour are both excellent.

MelvinKalksma (1115) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, bread, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a large brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been stronger. Amazing appearance with a huge head at the beginning, but a medium head that keeps coming back at the end. Great flavour from beginning to end, especially for the aroma.
