Very dark, coffee color - full rich body - staying head - effervescent nose - soft velvet feeling in the mouth - luscious. Malt character with a hoppy aftertouch. Monks used to fast on this type of beer for 40 days! No food, only beer.

KnutAlbert (6067) - 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.

sharkydodson (185) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 11, 2014
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...

Aroma maltado com toques de caramelo. Aparência tipo bock com belo corpo e bom laço. Sabor caramelado com percepção de torra. Bom amargor no final. No geral, um belo conjunto.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonolpoet, Tromsø Langnes. Drukket hjemme 3 Apr 13. Mørk rødbrun. Veldig høyt - litt farget luftig skum. Står som betong. Nydelige kniplingsfiligranser. Beskjeden amaltaroma med antydning til frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken har et visst krydderpreg. Blir syrlig & litt tørr etter hvert. Litt uklar siste kvelling med sedimenter igjen i flaska.
