A 500ml bottle with a BB of July 2016. Batch no. 659, brewed (or bottled) on the 13th July 2011. Purchased from my local beer specialist - this might be the most expensive beer I've tried to date.
Poured into a Duvel tulip. An exceptionally dark brown with hints of ruby; appears completely black in the glass and when held to the light. Yields a massive head of creamy brown foam with excellent retention; this eventually subsides. Darkest head I've seen yet. Intense aroma of roasted coffee/malt with notes of cocoa and burnt grain.
Tastes of roasted coffee and malt with a dry, bitter finish. Intense notes of roasted coffee, roasted malt and burnt grain, with undertones of cocoa, liquorice, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety, with tingly carbonation and a dry, spicy character. Astringent. Aftertaste of bitter coffee and roasted malt.
What a beer! An amazing blend of coffee and dark malt with a fantastic aroma and flavour. The mouthfeel is incredible; the most viscous beer I've tried. A world-class brew and well worth your time (and money).
