On tap at Delirium Cafe, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out caramely bready malt and dark dried fruits. Flavour is quite similar, with notes of dark dried fruits, caramel and bready malt. Full-bodied and medium sweet, but without any cloying quality. Very well-balanced and highly drinkable for the style. Very good.

Pours clear deep red. Aroma is caramel, slight roastyness. Taste is sweet, caramel, a bit of spice. Decent middle-of-the-road brew.

Also listed as Keizer Karel Rood. Aroma of hay and fruits. It appears dark amber with a frothy off-white head. The taste is only medium sweet and lightly bitter but stays sweet in the finish. Enjoyable in the mouth with average carbonation. Not so special, but a decent ale.

Bottle @Ca Va. Pours dark amber with off-white head. Herbal, little sweet aroma. Taste little sweet, sugar, herbs. Not bad and easy drinkable.

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - APR 14, 2014
Couleur caramel foncée avec des reflets rubis. Nez légèment vineux, fruits rouges, cerises à l’eau de vie. En bouche, fruits rouges (cerises, frmaboises), léger côté boisé, alcool très présent. Corps assez fort, un peu liquoreux. Bonne bière.

33cl from BierNavigatie. 33cl amber brown with a medium soapy slightly off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet some herbal bitter tones. Red fruits, brown sugar, some warming alcohol, spices and malts. A nice somewhat fruity Belgian brew.

VincentKabel (152) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
A red-brown beer with a firm off-white head that lasts. medium carbonation. A very smooth beer with some caramel and roasted notes. With a very smooth aftertaste wich makes this a really good drinkable beer. Nice amount of character, but not to much to keep you from taking another.

timmwillum (61) - BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2014
Helt mørk rødbrun ale med brunt flygtigt skum. Meget tydelig vanilje i næsen. Sødlig start med skovfrugt og krydderier, som balanceres fint med bitter humle i eftersmagen. Dejlig ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@boltons. Copper clear. Small head. Fine dark fruity notes. Spicy! Sage thyme. Sharp upfront bitterness. Spicy taste. Long tannin like finish. Interesting complex.
