The opaque mugs provided with this selection prevented a perfect examination of the appearance, but this one poured with a nice dark brown color and a thick head. The aroma was spicey and the flavor was very spicey: some cinnamon and nutmeg alongside the dark fruits. Mouthfeel was moderate to heavy and very nice.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2006
A dark ruby colour with a fast diminishing white head. The aroma is slightly sweet and fruity. The taste is also sweet and fruity. Just to sweet for my taste. (Bottle 33cl)

Clear red w/ moderated tan head. Carmelized sugar and fruit aroma. Oxidized. Simple caramel flavor with a strong alcohol presence and an unbalanced bitter finish.

Dorqui (2111) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 4, 2006
Creamy and rather adherent nut head. Dark brown color, enough hazy, loads and with a good fizz. Sweet and alcoholic scent with caramel, toasted malt and cellar notes. Enough prickly wrapping, decided and solid taste. Much alcoholic and perfumed with sweet and little spiced aromas. Good persistence final.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Rød-brun øl fået som fad på Den Tatoverede Enke. + flaske hjemme. Sødlig karamelsmag med tilpas bitterhed. Varm og godt humlet. Belgisk gær brugt uden at det virker gennemtrængende. Alohol ikke dominerende. God øl.
