Tap at t’Klooster, Delft. Poured a murky dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is liqourice, roasted malt, sweet fruit and a hint of dark chocolate. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth dry hop spicy bitter palate and short bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Really refreshing beer with some lovely hoppiness in the palate. Well balanced indeed. Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pretty much black. Aroma us quite rich, almost imperial in its treacly quality. Fairly thick creamy body. Lots of chocolatey depth, dark and delicious. Not much nuance beyond that, but some good dessert beer quality. Christos (5898) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter, ABV 6.9%. Thanks to Lonick for this! mgajdaczewa (2311) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Totally black pour on the body, brown head, bigger than one finger, with good retention. A foam island along with big bubbles remains on the surface after the head has collapsed, plus some light lacing around the glass.
Aroma is mainly of liquorice and coffee but there are some nice chocolate notes as well.
Taste also of liquorice, light chocolate, a weird acidity, roasted malts and a very bitter aftertaste.
Medium body, good carbonation that you feel, quite dry palate.
Overall a good porter.
W aromacie kakao, mnóstwo kakao! w tle lekkie nutki kawowe, bardzo przyjemnie, nie za słodko. W smaku wytrawne, wyraźne kakao, kawa, lekko kwaskowe. Pijalne, świetnie ukryty alkohol. Bardzo dobry, sesyjny porter. Tak, przy 6,9%! Stuu666 (15076) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2014
