Bought at Drankenhandel Geers.

Very, very dark brown beer (or black if you will) with a thick layer of beige-coloured foam.
Solid taste of malts, slightly roasted flavour and pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Nose of butterscotch and roasted malts.

All in all it weighs a little light but that's partly due to its low alcohol content (6.3% ABV)

I am not sure where i bought this beer but it must have been at Dranken Geers.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer looks almost perfect. Pitchblack fluid with a very nice superhead with millions of bubbles. This beer made met think of the Black Albert from the Struise.

The smell is rather neutral, coffeenotes are the most specific ones.

This beer coulkd use a bit more alcohol. It would give the beer a bit af a stronger presentation. Not bad for an old ale!
