Bottle 330ml. 8.5% ABV. Exceptional beer, great with cheese. Aromas of caramel, cherries, butter, and oak. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark amber, with a frothy head.

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.

Reddish hue, amber head. Interesting aroma of berries. Stronger than expected, wide variety of tastes going on in the mouth. Berries, some caramel, fruits, barley. Overall something quite different. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Pours out a nice deep red with a small off white head. Smells of cherries, roses and sugar. Tastes very unusual. Some nice bitter sour notes. Some grapey elements are present, but otherwise, this one’s very hard to place. Definitely unique,

23rd February 2008. Smooth brown beer. Very creamy with a distinct chocolate milkshake feel. Smooth, sumptuous, soft, superb!

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Enorm vol aroma. Enorm vol mondgevoel, heerlijk. Zachte iets fruitig smaak, erg levendig veel tonen. Zoete, karamel maar ook erg hoppige afdronk.Charles Quint - Robijn Rood

janubio (363) - 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.

Excellent beer. Nice ruby colour and a very malty taste. I loved the glass it was served in.

JonMoore (1806) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2005
Lovely amber colour, with ahuge off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel. Taste is very nicely roasted malty and sweet with brown sugar, caramel, plums and perhaps some other fruits. Nice smooth mouthfeel, nice and drinkable. Good ale.

Not as good as I expected. It is good, and dark. But it was not so alcoholic in taste as I expected. It was nice after all.
