6th Feb 2015: Bottle exchange in De Bierboom, Brugge. No idea who brought this. Black pour, beige topping. Roasted malty nose with coffee and chocolate notes leading the way, a floral hint always in the background.The same could be said for the flavours: malty goodness with coffee and chocolate to the fore while behind lurks the floral hop content beavering away to stop the malts taking over completely. Nice, glad I had this early in the evening because it might have got eaten up if the big alcohol hitters had been in and around it. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle; Christmas gift to me. Opaque and black with a beige head. Can’t fault the appearance really. Aroma is coffee; chocolate; oak chips; some smoke; perfume and floral elements. Taste is chocolate chip cookies; cream; nougat; chocolate gateaux; black penny sweets; licorish; some burnt tar; treacle and marzipan. A little hot in the malt but generally very good for the style. My favourite Round Tower beer. fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2014
