Poured a murky brown color into the trappist glass. There was an inch of fluffy white head and a slight lacing. There were pieces of sediment floating in the glass. Scents of cherries, malt, yeast and chcolate are apparent in the scent and in the taste. A dry, flavorful finish and nice mouthfeel contribute to an enjoyable Strong Ale.

Chuny brew with a red colour. Burnt caramel, lemon merengue pie aroma mixed with cider and cherry notes. There is something grassy in there as well. Sweet pie flavours and cherry notes mixed with chocolate and roast. very nice stuff that grows as it opens up. Great beer!

2013/06/07 - Pours a hazy dark brown-mahogany color, with a thin, creamy tan head. Aroma is dark fruits and toffee with a feint smokiness. Taste is dark fruits, toffee, cocoa and molasses. Mouthfeel is oily, with smooth carbonation and a sweet and slightly boozy finish. Very smooth.

Grumlig brun öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. Kryddig doft tillsammans med fikon, ekfat och jäst. Samma i smaken tillsammans med torkad frukt och fikon.

Gorgeous looking beer, very dark mahogany in colour, opaque with a thick creamy light tan head which lasts well. Aromas of port, cherries, toffee, toasted pumpernickel and some booziness. Opens up sweet with caramel flavours followed quickly by lovely dark fruit notes, medium to full body and nicely balanced, long warming and port-like finish. Breathtaking!

330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy brown/amber with a large off-white head. Aromas are fruit (prune), some spice, and alcohol. Taste has some earthy tang, over-ripe dark fruit (raisin, prune, dark cherry), and a touch of alcohol. Full body, moderate carbonation, medium fruity finish. Very reminiscent of Westvleteren XII, but better.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Muddy brown body with a big mocha head, excellent retention. Aroma of yeast, dough, coriander, peppercorn, dried herbs, old wine and oak barrel. Taste of the first wave: yeast and herbal hops, second wave: caramel and spices, raisins, plums, molasses, a little bit of woodiness. Sticky and delicious.
