330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. 2015 vintage BB 12/18 Deep thick tawny body, small ring of tan foam sits atop. Aroma is rich - dark brown caramel, toasted nuts, honey, cocoa, sultana & vinous dark fruits. Big rich syrupy body, low carbonation, lusciously warming & inviting. Steps up a gear on the body - loads of rich, sweet burnt caramel, toasted nuts, chocolate, port, touch of smoke on a warming, reasonably bitter finish. Lovely great big winter warmer.

Maakun (4064) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Very dark reddish brown with off white head. Figs, raisins, caramel, quite some herbs and alcohol. Basically lots of herbal candies and Jagermeister. Medium sweet and a bit over medium bitter. Over medium bodied with nice fitting carbonation. Bit too bitter and alcoholic for me.
