Brown dark color with beige foam. The smell is roasty with malt and nut. The taste is roasty malty and a bit too foamy. The aftertaste is a bit boring. SinH4 (4759) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2015
Dark brown color with tan head. Rusty, metallic, old cellar from the bottom-fermented yeasts. Taste is coffee, more rust, quite spicy from the yeasty. Too much carbonation. Interesting. Bosskie (883) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
Pitch black, huge head, lively carbonation.
Smell is metallic white pepper and very intense lemon sourness.
Taste is creamy bitter-sour. Very subtle hints of milk chocolate. Delicious fizz. Nicely balanced, no frills, nice! jerohen (2296) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2015
Bottled from Gall&Gall, Naarden (good to see that even these guys are gradually expanding their selection of beers). Black appearance, small beige head. Aroma is not very strong but nice, roasted malts, licorice, some cocao even. Strong flavor of roasted malts, sweet licorice, wort, little bit of caramel, cocao, hint of coffee, finishes more bitter than sweet. I’m pleasantly surprised, it’s so good i’m actually going to get more of this. Finally some good local stuff from ’t Gooi. deanso (10128) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 24, 2014
33cl bottle from Slijterij van Pernis.
