Very deep burgundy brown with good head. Aroma is malty and nice. Flavor is smooth, a bit slightly sweet with a dry finish. Pretty decent beer.

Murky brown pour, thin off white head. Nose is malt and a hint of dried fruit. Bittersweet. Middle is cherries, roasted grain...a little watery.Finish is lightly sweet and carbonated. Just OK.

dlihcsnatas (426) - Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Dirty brown brew with fast fading head. Smells like a box of raisins. Taste is odd with hints at some licorice, sour bread, and something funky I can’t place. Not completely yuk but not a desired taste either. Maybe after 40 days of just this beer I’d acquire a taste for it.

rdb84 (243) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2015
Cola pour with frothy head. Fresh, bock-like aroma: fresh cut grass, rye, pepper, chocolate notes, almond, hint of cherry. Taste is quite cola-like, with a sweet start. Not many tastes are discernible (quite watery): some raisin hints, faint hint of chocolate, bock notes. Aftertaste is dark chocolate, sweet.

Couleur brune, légère mousse beige. Nez malt légèrement grillé, fruits noirs, levures, légère vanille. Gout malté légèrement grillé, caramel, fruité, candy, note de fruits noirs et note d’épices. Corps moyen. Fin assez rapide un peu grillée. Pas mal, dubbel qui sort de l’ordinaire.

Poured a dark amber brown colour with a fluffy white head that left thin lacing. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malts and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, plums/ raisins, and brown sugar. Medium bodied with present carbonation. Bittersweet somewhat astringent mouthfeel leading to a dry finish.

Gangstergafje (152) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
Beautiful dark reddish brown color. The beer pours a slightly brown soft foam. The smell had a slight touch of metal. The beer has a little touch of caramel, which is nice. The beer has some sweetness and bitterness, which is perfectly in balance. The taste is quite simple, but not bad.

Tognetta (209) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2015
Marrom bem escuro, espuma também marrom, cremosa, de média duração. Aroma licoroso, bastante doce, coco, um pouco de chocolate. Paladar adocicado leve, corpo leve/médio mas que deixa uma leve sensação de aguado depois de alguns goles, carbonação flat. Aftertaste trouxe um pouco do amargor, café e coco novamente, de média duração. Gostei, mas seria ainda melhor se fosse mais encorpada.
