freretoc (783) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 27, 2014
Bue à la pression en 25cl au kilarney, couleur brune trouble, belle mousse peu d’effervescence, une bière avec un goût très caramel continuité sur le malt et fin de bouche sur le sucre à peine réglisse. Vraiment bonne !

langeveld12 (249) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Head is average, off-white and frothy. Body is dark reddish brown, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains quite some malts (mainly roasted and sweet), spices, lime, sweet dried fruits like dateand some forest fruits. Flavor is light acidic and then massively sweet to finish in light bitter. Body is full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Too sweet, too bad.
