Draft @ In de Wildeman. Black as the night, subtle coffee like foamhead. Little aroma at start but increases to smokey coffee while heating up and foam dissipates. Smokey coffee/ espresso flavour, very intense. Long coffee and smoke aftertaste.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 Drought at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Pours a dark amber color with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma is spicy, licorice, alcohol and wood. Explosive flavor that fills the whole mouth. There is caramel, toffee and nuts. Bittersweet full bodied flavo. Very nice long bitter finish. 16% alcohol is very well hidden. Great.

Re-rate 28-11-10: Aroma of tropical fruits, sweet malts, spices and some alcohol. Flavor is very round, sweet fruits, some warming alcohol and still very smooth and mild. Nice brew.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
A Mes rate. Draught at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
A good looking ruby / mahogany beer. Very sweet and fruity with big caramel and alcohol notes. Nice hoppy goodness underneath. Something christmassy about it, must be the fruit. Rich chewy alcohol finish that dries as it goes. Very good.

ggaughan (100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 4, 2009
On tap at the 1st BBF at De Molen. Beer poured a redish brown color with a tan head. Aroma is powerful with caramel and dried fruit notes. Taste is even more powerful with a warming alcohol presence, dried fruit taste and a nice hop bitterness on the tongue.

Fin (9358) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Pours clear reddy/brown looks absolutely great and in stark contrast to the gravy appearance of the Simcoe dry hopped version. Aroma is fruit, sweet maybe even a little nutty. Good warmth from the alcohol though again its very well hidden, decent bitterness, very nice and my favourite of the three. A7 A5 F8 P4 Ov15 3.9
