4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 660 ml bottle - aged for two years in perfect cellar conditions - pours murky brown with amber hints; creamy head - beige like a caffe latte. Aroma of roasted nuts, soy sauce, plums, coffee, a bit of peat but very nice and balanced, subtle. Medium body with just a tad too much sweetness that covers a bit too much the peated effect. Taste is going to a quad; bread, malt and a tad of peatiness. LIKE!
a fresh off the shelve 2013 version. Sampled at +15°C. Delicious vanilla and cream aromas (vanilla pudding), sweet oak, and caramel and malts. Huge beer, seriously underestimated.

Mooie chocolade bruine kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Goede volle geur. Ruikt peated, gerookt, vanille en hout en iets ziltig. Smaakt vol, rook, peated, vanille en hout. Goede alcohol nasmaak. Lekker.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Drinking date: 28 February 2014) The beer is pitch black, no light comes through. Thin layer of foam on the head. The beer smells a lot like whiskey, a lot of wood and smoke in the aroma. I don?t really like it. The carbonation and the mouthfeel are good. The taste is better, but still a lot of smoke and wood in the taste. I think this is a really good beer, but it is not my type of beer. So I rated this beer how I personally like it, so that?s why this beer gets a low score unfortunately. So overall this beer has a powerfull wood and smoke aroma and taste, which I personally don?t like. But I think that other people like this beer a lot. So it?s not a bad beer, it?s really good, but I personally don?t like it :( That?s why it gets the total score of 2.9 (Unfortunately I threw this beer away)

This beer has a lovely, dark, rich flavour. It has roasty, chocolate and smoky tones. A beautiful ruby colour, minimal head and favourably not too sweet. Not so much carbonation. An abrupt finish.
