From bottle at a tasting @ Bor’s, with Borresteijn, Zlotta, Markoijelena, Adamnowek, Skortila, MarcodL and Harmen. Bottled 12/15. Almost black color, but not quite opaque. Beige head. Aroma’s: from the glass not so much actually, light alcohol, weird. Retronasal it’s quite the opposite: sweet, alcohol, light bourbon, vanilla, oak. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasty, a bit alcohol. Medium bodied. Long finish, but no new flavors. Nice after all.

Bottle tasted @ Bor’s place. The aroma has light roast, light chocolate, bit bourbon. The aroma is quite weak unfortunately. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste has sweet chocolate, bit roast, bit coffee and bourbon. Taste is definately better/stronger than the aroma. Good overall. MarcoDL (4798) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
