Good ol' Sammy pours the infamous coal black into the Corsendonk tulip, thick marshmallow tan head floats gently on top, and leaves a sheet of lace on the way down. Nice way to start a sip of beer session.
Dark fruit of plum and raisin in the aroma, and I can detect some anise under the sheets. Thick and gooey quaff of burnt toast and deep roasted malt, only drawback is bit of woody resin in the finish. Has a kick of alcohol burn, even with the 12oz bottles, they could use a year of rest. Still, for $10 you get 2 bombers worth of high octane beer with a fine quality to them.
