TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2010
Bottled 330ml alc. 6.8% (Beer Planet, BB ?)
Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Aroma of raisins, dark malts, slight oxidation (balsamico). Medium-bodied. Caramelly with some malty and sherryish notes. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. I could guess that this is an aged bottle, and nice one.

Dark port ruby, creamy tanned head, lace. Fruity, woody, yeasty nose. Medium-bodied, sticky sweetish mouthfeel. Dry aftertaste, alcohol warms in the finish. Well-balanced, well-made brune.

Had it both at the the brewery, and at home 8 months later, meaning it spent 10-12 months in the bottle. At the brewery, although I do not precisely remember, it was too sweet, and by far not the best beer I had from them. Now, after spending a little time in the bottle, it has certainly mellowed out. Pours brown, with a thick, off white head that diminishes in about 10 minutes to just a lacing on top of the beer. Predominant aromas are burnt sugar, and dates, with a touch of vanilla, and a slight flutter of madeira and wet wood. The palate is sweet but with a good nuttiness. It is a little cheeky and tight, but good. Flavor fades quickly, leaving notes of nutty cheese, and again, wet bark on the palate. The carbonation started strong and then faded. Overall, this is a solid beer, emblematic of the style, and sweet like the Belgians like it, although, I did not find it to be overbearing at all. A beer that would make a great session beer for a poker night. Not necessarily meant to be savored. This beer would pair well with both strong cheeses (like gouda or edam) and mild chocolate with caramel.

Earlier Rating: 4/8/2008 Total Score: 3.3
Bottled (6.3%). Dark brownish red colour with big beige fluffy/bubbly head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, nuts and some mild fruityness. Flavour is fruits, toffee, mild coffee as well as some quite sour fruits. As it warms up it gets some mild metallic notes in it. Some spices and yeast also become present as it warms up. Aftertaste is sour fruit along with spices and some wood and caramel.

Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, spice, caramel and light dark fruits. The flavour has sweetness, notes of roasted malt, light coffee, caramel light fruit and citrus. It has a nice long, slightly dry finish with light notes of candy sugar and hints of coffee.
