janubio (540) - SPAIN - APR 7, 2007
Pours an absolutely nice deep red colour, with an enormous brwonish head that seems to last forever. Vigorous lace. Aroma of cherries and, surprisingly, bananas. Spices, almonds. Somebody said roses? Body is a bit lighter than expected, but good. Taste of cherries, oranges, cinnamon and vanilla... very nice. A sweet and a bit medicinal aftertaste.

Fin (8424) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle, given to me by Glen. Poured medium brown in colour with huge white fluffy head and nice malty, yeasty nose. The malt and yeast are there straight away in the mouth but also a warming effect from the alcohol also makes a presence. This was a thoroughly decent beer one that I’d had before and enjoyed but thanks again to Glen for this, yumm.

Very nice brew. Head is very nice on this beer and goes down very smooth with excellent flavor. Certainly recommend drinking it in town square like Brugge or Brussels over frites.

Really great amber beer. It was served in this hilarious 4 handled Charles Quint glass at the pub I was at. The glass was blue so I didnt get to see the color of the beer. Their stout is exceptional as well. Good Brewery even if the bottles and glasswear are a little extravagent ;)

33cL Bottle. This beer was better than I anticipated. Lovely deep, red color. Initially I thought it was a little to sweet, but the flavor mellowed. Light carbonation and very good lacing. I would recommend this beer.
