2011 vintage on draft at Klooster, Delf. Pours near black with a thick beige head. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and light heavy bitter.

Quite an interesting beer. The aroma and taste has a balanced sourness. Furthermore it has the character of a stout with roasted and coffee notes. Quite a nice fine bubbled dark beer. Quite interesting, but not my favorite bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2013

(750ml brewed 10-8-2010 botles 11-25-2010) dark brown, fine tan lasting bubbles. Nose is odd, juniper, tar, ashy, berries, sawdust, tobacco. Taste of tar, ash, juniper, light berry, dark chocolate. Very unique beer, not technically executed well. Albe (56) - ITALY - JAN 10, 2013
Almost dark color, with a fully diminishing off-white head. Aroma delivers roasted malty notes, red fruits, some chocolate and coffee, and many spices. Taste is sweet, and lightly bitter at the beginning, also with a light alcoholic feeling. The body is complex and full, interesting for a "meditation" night with friends. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
