Bottle: Poured a deep burgundy color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of dry earthy hops with some dry roasted malt notes. Taste is a mxi between some roasted malt with dry bitter notes with some earth hops with and almost astringent finish. Body is light with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A bit too much astringency to be truly enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

33cl Bottle: BBD 25th Apr 2016. Drank on 30th Jan 2014 in 't Brugs Beertje.

Pours almost a true black, but it's really dark, dark brown with a deep red hue: lightly tanned head.

Burnt malts rule the nose, they also take over the taste but not as much as in the aroma.

In the mouth dark fruit flavours within a chocolate bar and a bittering hop undertone stop the beer becoming one dimensional and help to hide the 9.2% ABV which is always hanging around in the background.

Different and most enjoyable.
