Trübes dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer beiger Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, sehr fruchtig, Gewürze. Geschmack sehr würzig malzig, Karamell, Zucker.
Sampled draft @ O.B.E.R. Kestbierfestival 2014. (Thx!) Dark hazy brown, beige head. Nose is werid, candy, spice, malt, cold coffee. Taste is not entirely right, herbal, malt, bitter leaves, grainy, odd bitterness,… Cold coffee body. Disappointing, especially coming from this brewery.

Duysters’ winter beer, with an irregular, off-white, quickly dissolving head and very dark brown colour, near to black. Strongly hopped aroma (as in: leafy European hops), bitter chocolate, roastedness, graininess, sourish and even a bit wry in the end, low carbo. A bit weird and unbalanced.
