15-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
Of all the De Graal beers Iíve tried, this is the least enjoyable for me. The classic flavors of dried fruit, brown/candi sugar, and spice are present in smaller degrees, but what really stands out is red apple and a woodsy quality of dried leaves and old wood, and the apple turns to apple skin in the finish. Kind of a dreary flavor, and not exactly appealing. The nose is similar, with earthy, woodsy aromas as well as a bit of cheesiness. Medium in weight, medium in carbonation, and fairly dry, especially considering the style. Hazy, amber-brown body with half an inch of dark-tan head that fizzes down to a thin ring fairly quickly, leaving no lacing. Didnít enjoy this one.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 10, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a medium brown, with an offwhite head. Smells sweet, of candi sugar, and dried fruits, and a hint of spice. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, and mild tartness. Texture is oily. Carbonation is lively. Finishes mildly cloying, with a small dry bitterness.

borisz (374) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2012
Aroma of roasted caramel maltiness mixed with some spice. Hazy, dark brown coloured with a lasting, thick brown head. Taste is sweet and bitter. Caramel malty, roasted. Some fruits (prunes/raisins) and definately spices in it. Bit like a combination between a dubbel and a stout. Nice.
