330 ml bottle. Date not on bottle but I suspect it’s a couple of years old. Pours dark brown with medium head. Aromas of nutty brownies, brown sugar, roasted malts, some dark fruit and spice, Flavors of nuts and vegetables, dry brown sugar, heavy malts. A little oily

At ZBF 2005 Lightly brown (caramel-like) head, mostly lasting. Tawny body, excellent lace. Medium bodied. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour. Lightly bitter finish.

490 from Asao, shared with Yves. 8% a clear brown color with a minimal head & a malty taste with distinct maple syrup notes. The taste is quite sweet with an interesting interplay between malty caramel & maple syrup. The sweetness isn’t cloying but does linger in a lasting aftertaste which is fairly pleasant. Possibly best served with something to mitigate the sweetness a bit.

Thank you to share this one with me! If I read the comments here, I’m pretty sure we got a bad bottle... still was good for a year or so, but I didn’t get this good feeling about this beer at all... Little sour smell, spices, fruits, lots of spices, something anice/mint like. Weird. Head is ok, but don(t hold good. Taste kicks very hard in. Sour fruits and spices. Completly out of balane, totally not my taste. To not just say bad... Have to retry this one some day, cause this can’t be how it’s ment to taste.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2005
Dark amber coloured beer with a creamy head. The aroma is rather weak. The taste is very sweet with ginger, speculoos dominating. This beer was a bit too much.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2007
A dark brown beer with a nice lacy beige head. Aroma is very vinious. Also some sourness and after a while some dark fruits. Nice sweet fruity flavors. Some alcohol (at the end), burned caramel and malts. Maybe a bit to much?

Had it on tap before now drinking from bottle brewed with maple sirop from Quebec. The sirup makes the beer too sweet. The color is brown

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
Draught at ZBF 2005. Poura dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malty, spicy, and a litle sour. Taste is way to sweet. It overpowers the malts and yeast notes allmost completly
