Bottled 330ml (BB 01/2013)
Thanks bierkoning! Deep ruby color, small vanishing cola-like head. Sweet caramel and berries in the nose. Medium to full-bodied. Very, very sweet. Raisins, caramel, prunes. Some spiceyness in the aftertaste. Sweetness hides ABV quite well. Simple abt, not sure if it gets more complicated after cellaring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small, rough off-white head. Loads of brown sugar up front, somewhat pruney. Rich body, lowish carbonation, dark dried fruit, very metallic, again lots of brown sugar, some chocolate. No bitterness but some warming alcohol. The metal is really off-putting. 030812

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This was a bit of a disapointment for me. I really looked forward on trying this one and it turned out to be not as great as I hoped. Pours a dark brown colour without any head. Alcoholic and yeasty aroma with some light fruits present. Flavour is really sweet and has a slight alcoholic burning in aftertaste. Not really what I hoped it to be...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown colour and very small white head, it could be better in appearence. Under carbonated in average, but taste and palate it’s okay: sweet, malty, and some licorice notes. Alcohol taste is well masked.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very dark brown body and light tan head. Yeasty sweet arom, brioche bread, chocolate muffins, caramelized red apple, but maybe not as expressive as such a description might indicate. Bit disapointing. Taste makes up for this: a real warming, light sticky body. Lots of fruity, sweaty sweetness, dried fruit and with a alcohol hint at the back. Finishes with burned caramel. Warms my throat as well as my heart, as I love this kind of full bodied sweetness in a Belgian style beer. Low carbonation further accentuates this character. Can see how this might not appeal to everyone, though. (33cl bottle, reasonably priced)

Medium creamy to off white head, disappears quick, on top of a dark ruby colored beer.
Smel prunes, roosvicee, barleys. A balance between darker ingredients and deeper but nice sweetness.
Taste barley(s,) malts, spices, caramel, some herbs. Medium bitterness.
Bitter barley prunes aftertaste.,
Low to medium carbo, light spicy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture.
Nice and well balanced tasty beer.
