Draft, thanks Klaas. Brune avec un col épais café au lait. Arôme au nez malté, houblonné assez vert aux effluves marquées de Cascade et un apport frais, vert et herbacé rappelant le thé Maccha. En rétro-nasal, je note un peu de ce côté levure belge, rétro malté alternant sur caramel et léger chocolaté. Palais est malté, pointe de chocolat, grillé sur fini houblonné de Cascade apportant une sécheresse perdurant, fin de bouche donne encore cette impression de thé vert plus l’occasionnel profil fruité agrumes de Cascade. Retrouve un caractère plutôt belge dans l’approche surtout au niveau de la base des grains.

One of the newer Totems, at GBF. Cobweb-lacing, pale beige, moussy head, cloudy very dark bronze colour, not completely black. Aroma of dried grapefruit peel, green peppercorns, coffee grounds, walnut, dried fig, cloves. Subdued dried fruit sweetishness in the onset with an umami edge (dried mushroom), medium carbo, supple body; very nutty middle, quickly becoming bitterly toasted, a bitterness further accentuated by peppery and dried citrus peel-like, long, resinous, deeply bittering hoppiness. Could do with a more aromatic hop character - again one of these new ’Euro BIPAs’ I guess, but I welcome every attempt at this style made in Belgium.

Very dark brown with creamy head. Aroma is quite floral and peppery. Thin body. Too gassy. Dark malts come through well. Hop bitterness in the finish.

Thank you for sharing! Sampled twice draft @ Gents Bierfestival 2016. Very dark brown, touch black, big creamy mocha head. Nose is mocha, very grainy bitter herbal mocha, grainy chocolate, powdery coffee, all bitter,… Body is fizzy, very grainy,… Taste is rather fizzy, low umami, very grainy, bitter, grainy coffee, fizzy herbal chocolate, bitter, low herbal, mocha,… Rather odd, didn’t full get into it but it was nice, a bit too grainy, bitter with not much balance,… It is an odd BIPA no matter how you look at it.
