Aroma is very nice citrus. Pours with a nice head that stays. Flavor isn’t nearly strong enough, which is my only complaint.

KnutAlbert (6085) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
As dark as they come. Rich, bittersweet, herbal, raisins. But there is too much sugar to make this memorable. There is a lot of lovely juicy goodnss underneath the sweetness here.

the flavour is caramel and fruity with shades of red wine... the taste is rather rich, with notes of plum, dark fruits, spices and, a little bit, chocolate... aftertaste is dry and bitter... nice dubbel...
