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.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from local offie, Brussels. Clear reddish brown in colour with malty off white head. Fantastic lacing. Nicely spiced nose with notes of cinnamon, apple and alcohol. The taste runs a little flat, which is a shame. It’s shortfall is compensated by sweet hints of caramel, gingerbread and chocolate orange. Long, warm finish likened to amaretto and rum. An appropriate treat for the winter holidays. It has a great deal of potential - if only it wasn’t flat.

Bottled at MacAle, Randers. Clear, copper beer with a small beige head. Sugar, dried fruits and some bitterness in the finish. Dried fruits, alcohol, sugar and bitterness in the finish. Medium body and a sweet and bitter finish. Nice beer with a lovely sweetness. (061007)
