Gorgeous red-purple appearance, far too much toffee-colored head, cognac nose, bitter black currant and brandied cherries in an alcoholic wet dream.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is black colored and has nearly no head, which should be cream colored. Also carbonation is a little low.
The aroma is a very rich palate of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and some sweetness of raisins and caramel.
The taste is overal medium sweet with notes of caramel, dark fruits and a hint of alcohol.
The aftertaste is a well balanced light bitter. First there is the sweetness and then a hint of the used hops is noticable. Above all, it’s very warming and the alcohol is noticable in the background.
Seriously, one of the best beers in Holland. Shame it’s so expensive (€3,00 a bottle).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Schön dick und vollmundig mit einer ordentlichen prise an Früchten im Aroma. Daneben spielt der Alkohol eine nicht zu geringe Rolle, während Brot und Erde eine gewisse Grundehrlichkeit verleihen. Nicht schlecht.
