330ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pours dark brown, thick, but short-lived, beige head. Aromas mostly dark sugars and light herbs. Taste dominated by the candi sugar though. Sweet finish as well. OK, but I prefer beers to be less sweet.

androman (317) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Dark reddish-brown color, strong brownish head. Aroma fruit, caramel, honey, licorice notes, cinnamon notes, slightly roasty, malty. Alcohol is slightly present. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness, salty notes. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, medium bittersweet finish with soft honeyish sidetaste. Honey is not as much present as in the general Barbar beer, this one is closer to an average belgian strong ale. Good but not that exciting.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

g_georgiou (166) - CYPRUS - FEB 6, 2014
Dark brown with a hint or red body. Beige head. To the eye seems like it has a thick consistency. Aroma is caramel, raisins some dark fruit. Medium sweet to sweet taste. Quite thick texture but carbonation breaks the oiliness a bit.

Buena cerveza, aroma y sabor agradables, aunque peca de dejar demasiado sabor alcohólico en paladar

Bu en bouteille de 33cl avec bouchon "bouteille de lait" .. bière belle, mousse épaisse, goût de miel onctueux, qui reste en bouche, une bière comme je les aime....
