kraddel (7564) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2016
Pours unclear blonde, big to huge White head. Smell is big on malts, as well as a huge bitterness. Taste is really bitter and Sharp, rather dry, very malty in the back as well. Too much carbo, but the mouthfeel is right. Still not my favorite bdb, but i do Prefer this over the b1

Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Looks identical to batch 1. Rear of label states batch 2. Hazy amber. Thin, dense, glossy topped, lasting, white head. Nose has banana toffee malts. Some clove. Some almond. Apricot kernel. Notes of ripe strawberry and juicy blueberry. Hint of toasted cinammon bun. Taste has the banana sweetness, quickly turning fruity, spicy, chewy bitter. Smooth, rich, foamy mouthfeel. Spicy bitter finish, with some rich, toffee sweetness. Super tasty.
