Medium aroma of malts, caramel, wood, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with a slight brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great sweet addition to an otherwise very roasted beer. Nice dash of coffee at the end as well. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, fles 500/377 BB End 2019, 33 cl sample. Dark color, short frothy head. Aroma of bubblegummy Brett, strawberry, bit booze. Leathery, bit sweet, some roast. Dont get any coffee, and was expecting more whisky, but it has become a Brett porter. Very enjoyable and for me probably better with Brett than unbalanced whisky barrel, but I doubt it was intended this way. androman (3000) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2017
