12/17/10. Bottle shared by fata2683 - thanks, Keith! A surprise here... I really enjoyed this brew! Nice smooth coffee and chocolate aroma with a big coffee flavor that fades into sweet milk chocolate. Quite nice!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark clear red brownish leathery colour with a beige head. Aroma has lots of dark fruit, raisins, plum, dark winegums, some alcohol. Taste is medium sweet with a strong malty character that contains dark fruits, coffee, some chocolate, maybe a hint of liquorice. A bit warming alcohol in the end and I also detect something like marzipan in the, quite long, aftertaste. It has quite a wine character. It’s pretty well made I guess, but it’s just not my thing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Duften består av tobakk, avokado, likør(?),
kaffe og gran.
Væsken er tynn og det samme er smaken. Den har absolut potensial, men med litt mer av alt hadde den også fått bedre poeng.

Pours clear ruby brown with big tanned head. Aroma is Sweeter than 3,5 and much fruitier. Flavor of dark dried fruits, hops, malts, sweet, christmas spicy with notes of alcohol. Flat palate. Finishes with a nice tart bitter aftertaste, not too much to "kill" the flavors of the Christmas buffet.

Pours almost black with a light brown head that settles to a thin foam layer leaving almost no lacings. Aroma of cold sweet caffe latte, chocolate and a sort of typical belgian dark fruitiness. It has a slight sweetness up front but dries out a bit towards the end. Smooth big body with a slight alcohol edge.
