COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown Serafijn has a spicey herbal character and a soft bitterness. The Achilles brewery has a unique way of achieving an even heating of the wort: using no direct flame or steam, the wort is pumped through a spiral that sits in a tub of hot water!

nybol (1130) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Forrygende god øl. Den har en rigtig god fylde, og en lang og intens eftersmag. Det er en meget kompleks smag, jeg synes lige umiddelbart der er svær at sætte direkte navne på hvilke smagindtryk man får, men det er mange. Bør drikkes alene hvor det gode selvskab er øllen.

kraddel (5726) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Gusher, that pours a big yet rapidly fading white head, over a unclear, red-brown beer. Smell is sharp malts, bit bitter. taste is sharp, bitter, metallic and yeasty. Somewhat spiced. I also get aromatic dark maltyness towards the aftertaste, with a strong sweet undertone.

Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, dried fruits, yeast, spices and herbs. Flavour is sweet. Body is medium. Good beer with a tasty aroma, but a bit heavy on the sugary sweetness.

vipinvelp (3552) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2015
Clear dark copper, light brown lasting, lacing foam head. Sweet caramel aroma. Great taste, bit too sweet but that is what you get with this style. Nice beer indeed. (Velp 201509)

Icedwarf (1144) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Helder donkerrood bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en fruitig, kersen, caramel en anijs. Komt helaas iets waterig over maar smaak is gewoon goed.
