33cl Bottle. 2006 VINTAGE. Trade with thewolf. Pours deep amber with a reddish hew and a small creamy stable white head. Nose is deep,vinous, complex and really wonderful. It has lots of dark fruits such as prunes and figs, and also some sherry and port notes. Sweet, deep and really lovely. Smooth, vaguely sticky and full bodied. Taste is a mix of liquorice, port and dark fruits. Amazing.

Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
Pours a nutty redish brown with a smallish beige head. Lots of bubbles reaching towards it at the sides of my snifter glass. Aroma is yeasty with chocolate, some plums and light fruitiness. The head stays for a very long time and looks more and more creamy. Creamy and very full mouthfeel - almost stout-ish. Flavour is very much chocolaty sweet with some roasted bitterness in the finish. There is perhaps a too apparent yeast note, but not too much to detract from the fact that this is one great beer.

Dark brown colored brew. Nice yeasty, malty, sweet flavor. Sweet and roasted bitterness. Nice one.

A Mes rate: Bottle at my ’Local’. Malty with some notes of liquorice. Sweet and fairly dull. Couldn’t finish it. Ok I could have done but I just didn’t want to.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2007
Bottled. Licorice, roasted malts and grass aroma. Brown color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, pretty bitter, roasted, grassy. Sparkling and full with a soft finish. A Bock with an English accent. Nice.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Dark brown colored, little light brown head. Spices, yeast, sweetness, toffee, brown sugar with syrup and mild licorice in complex aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is drier with chocolate and spicy toffee, bitter and mildly hopped aftertaste with some yeast and toffee also. Reminds me of some T’Ij products.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle from the Bierkoning shop. Sweet and sour, sherry-like warming feeling. This beer packs quite a punch, despite ralatively low alcohol content. Prunes, smoked malt, full flavour as I sip. I would have liked this with cheese or smoked meat.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 2006 version: Brown sugar and cinnamon in the aroma. Sweet flavor with cardemom. Sugary, some distant hops. Hints of roasted malt. Disappointing once again. (5 3 6 2 10 = 2.6) After some comments from Molenbrouwer I decided this beer needed a re-rate. Cinnamon, licorice and bread dough in the aroma and and the malty sweetish flavor. There should be dry hopping, but this is hard to taste. Some earthy hops in the aftertaste, but that’s about it. Still, I get the hang of this beer, so I upped the rating
