2016 and 2014 bottles. Highly carbonated, lasting head. Deep murky brown. Resiny, alcoholic smell. Faint. Medium sweet and strong bitter taste. Well balanced. Long and bitter finish. 2014 stronger overall, sweeter, more dank.

Pewnie sporo po terminie, ale bardzo ułożone, złożony i bogaty smak i aromat, bardzo dobre ale, bliskie do belgów.

varanid99 (997) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2016
2015 edition - drinking one now and putting another one down with my 2013. Murky brown pour, a few floaters and a tight tan head that persists a while. Toffee, dried fruit, jammy aromas. Taste is sweet, toffee, a little bitter, a little boozy, then some dried fruit and leather. Not bad - will be interested to see how it ages.

hohops (779) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
2014 edition. Appearance- murky copper, with an amber hue. A really small light brown head which quickly fades. Aroma- bready malt, toffee and caramel, sweet raisin, caramel biscuit. Taste- sugary boozy dark fruit, raisin with hints of plum, Belgian dubbel, banana bread, lots of malt, caramel biscuity backbone, red wine hints, fluffy slightly sticky mouthfeel. Everything is in place, although it doesn’t quite all come together.
