On tap at "Den Tatoverede Enke", Copenhagen. Lovely brown/ruby colour with a pretty head. Initial flavour is sweet with some dark fruity notes (raisin, plum etc.). Softly bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well.

I have never before seen such a mug that is served with this one. A coffee mug with three handles... Pours a deep amber hue witha nice head. Nice roasted flavor with decent finish.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 (Bottled, "Keizer Karel Robijn Rood", 8.5% ABV) Clear, deep dark ruby red color with a small but lasting, tanned head. Sweetish, toffee-caramely aroma of raisins, dark fruit and berries. Caramely, very slightly roasted, malty flavor with syrup, dark fruit, and some hops in the finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium to full-bodied, sweetish-syrupy palate with not much carbonation. A quite pleasant and drinkable, although quite sweet and syrupy brew. (Bottled, white label, was 7-4-7-4-15=3.7) Reddish nutty brown color with a medium, tight head. Slightly caramely-sweet, but also hoppy and oaky, dark toffee aroma. Quite sweet and malty, fruity flavor with a bitter finish. Hides the ABV well. Medium to full-bodied, slightly carbonated palate. A very "basic", semi-sweet, quite pleasant and drinkable Belgian strong ale. As easy to forget as it is to drink, though.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2004
Bottle at Plan B. Amber color and mild sweet caramel malty aroma and extrem sweet caramel taste, the alcohol is hidden nicely away in a full body. not bad but just to sweet for my taste.
