77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Bier Central. My first Deca beer. Light ruby, dark brownish amber with little white head – not too certain because of the lightning. Nose is sweet, lots of liquorice here, sweet herbs, touch grains, light dark fruits & thick caramel. Taste is big on liquorice, sweet, sweet with lots of sweet herbs, light dark fruits & touch syrup in the back, caramel, sweet toffee, grains & light touch of roasted malts. Touch too much carb. bit thin. Okay but not entirely there.

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2013
I think I have the right beer, it’s named Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren. Bought somewhere in Belgium. Smell of dried fruit and some earth cellar notes, or actually more like an attic. Smooth mouthfeel. Round tastes with dried fruit.
