My first entry for a while (internet problems) so it only seems right that I return with something a bit special....something that sadly is no longer brewed.....and something from one of my favourite breweries - Smisje, the beer in question Kuvee Elektrik 979W.

Pours a dark, hazy, chestnut brown, topped with a huge, bubbly, tan coloured head that quickly collapses in on itself to leave behind a thin constant covering.
Wonderful, appealing, complex aroma of bitter dark cocoa, dark dried fruits, caramel, roasted malts (almost bread like) before finishing with a definite hoppy / zesty tingle.

Taste is full of woody, roasted malts upfront but then brown sugar sweetness comes through along with again cocoa bitterness and dark sour fruits combined with a spicy mouthfeel, grassy earthy hops in the end providing the perfect balance.
