UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is great, a sweetness from dark sugar, cinnamon, raisins, vanilla, molasses. Taste follows the nose with a mild bitterness in the end. The alcohol is very well hidden.

Nez: toffee, chocolat, pruneaux Bouche: sucre, caramel, blé, chocolat, alcool. C’est bon mais sa réputation est à mon sens très surfaite!

Dark beer with a tall head. Complex and spicy taste with a persistent aftertaste. Warming alcohol which does not compromise the taste.

Jyrsa (83) - - NOV 21, 2014
BBE 1/2018 bottle. Pours clear with bits of yeast sediment. Brown head and reddish brown color. Nose has malts, licorice, raisins and hints of pure alcohol. Mouth is a balanced sweetness with just a little bit of bitterness and a complex thick texture. Finish is long and smooth. Overall a very kick-ass beer after a little under 2 years of maturing. I’m glad I have more of these in the cellar.

Probably not really my style, after being an early fave in my craft journey. But a ripper if that's your thing. Big and fruity. Solid

330cc bottle. Fantastic beer. It felt a bit to alcoholic. I will buy a few to keep in for a year or so.

Molto buona, corposa, con molto carattere. Berla invecchiata di 3 anni permette di scoprire nuovi sapori.

nogva (11) - NORWAY - NOV 17, 2014
Pours deep brown and clear with a frothy and long-lasting tan foam. Rich and complex aroma of caramel, chocolate, raisin and sweet plum. Medium/full body, creamy feel, lively carbonation. Taste is a bit drier than the aroma would suggest, and starts off with dried fruits, grape and some residual but well hidden alchohol. Long finish with sweet licorice, a hint of ripe apples and a subdued bitterness. One of my absolute favorite beers!

high_on_hops (650) - Burlingame, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a deep reddish brown with an off-white head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of raisin, wine, and some plum. The flavor is raisin, grape, and sugar up front with a semisweet backbone and long finish.

Even if lately i'm leaning more to bitter and bitter ales, this is one of my favourites. Simply flawless!

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass. Trappist, so it’s juste good !!! We’re in front of a deep aroma, enhanced with a heavy but sweet trappist yeast taste. Great palate and nice dark brown colour. Go drink it !
