Draught. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Hoppy fruity roasted malt in aroma. Roasted malt and old coffee with caramellish hints in flavour. A bit wheat too. Dryness at one point but then turns into a bit full and sticky palate. Overall very good one. Warming finish (of alcohol). larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005

Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing rlgk/Aniela:
Medium sized creamy vanilla beige foamy head that changes slowly on top of a clear brown colored beer.
The aroma has some typical tones like toast, grains, roasted barleys. Not much else next to a hint of coffee.
The flavour is nice bitter with a good roasty touch, think of roasted barley malts, some grain toast and some herbal roast/toast. Also some chalk, floral, cream and chocolate flavours. Pretty nice.
Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, good medium to a lightly fuller body and a creamy light oily texture. Nice beer as it is balanced and nothing too exaggerated.
