androman (2140) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2017
33cl bottle at home from De Caigny, Belgium. Nose is smoky, cardboard. Body is black, head is small, beige, frothy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is cardboard, blueberries, dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, dried fruits, cocoa, smoke. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty hoppy heavy bitter, tons of cocoa. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, strong flavor, bit out of balance but I like it, nice one.
