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.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2006
033l bottle at home. Clear reddish-brown with white head and great lacing. Spicy aroma. Malty and spicy taste with bitter finish. Thick dry mouthful. It will warm you nicely. Quite liked it.

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.

thebeertourist (5069) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle, labelled Keizer Karel Robijn Rood. Dark red-brown colour with a big creamy and lacing offwhite head. Caramel aroma with a somewhat herbal hoppiness. Caramel flavours meet yeasty spiciness. Quite well-balanced. A bit hard on the tongue. Well-made, but not very original.

fonefan (38083) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle. Dark red color with small yellow head. Spices and mild chocolate in aroma with mild alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Crispily carbonated brew with chocolate and spices, mild alcohol and chocolate fit nicely in aftertaste.
