Zilverenmaan (150) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2017
Aroma of burnt malts not overpowering. Taste of burnt malts a bit faint as well but well balanced with a fine, complex and lingering bitterness in the finish with no taste of alcohol getting in the way. Mouthfeel thin. Actually very enjoyable if you take your time to appreciate it.
