kermis (14224) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle shared. Really nice label with a couple of ducks in mid flight on the edge of a foreboding looking pond with a grim dark cloudy sky, industrial buildings in the background and yet nice refreshing natural reeds in the foreground. Really solid label design overall. Maakun will say it’s shit, but it’s not, it’s really good. The beer itself is black with a medium tan head. Aroma of roast, light dark chocolate, slight yeast, overripe dark fruits, malt, caramel and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle shared thanks to kermso. Stupid label with geese or ducks. Kermis will love it of course. Almost black with big beige head. Old coffee, hazelnuts, light mineral, roasted malts, soft licorice, some toffee and dark chocolate. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bit watery feel. deanso (10178) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - NOV 2, 2016

Smager af ristet malt, kaffe og lidt af noget der minder om vanille. Savner lidt eftersmag. kanaclane (497) - - JAN 8, 2016

33 cl bottle @ home, bought a a Lille market over a year ago. Black color. Thick, dense beige head with long retention. Aroma’s: red fruit, a bit roast. Retronasal there’s more roast, but still fruit as well, light sweet. Flavor is light sweet, light roast, coffee-ish, light fruity. Light to medium bodied. Short finish, with some roast. Decent, but more a Schwarz than a stout. Syfher (487) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge.
Well, great taste, but no aftertaste. In fact, it’s a shame
