MiP (13998) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
Draught at Cambrinus in Brugge. Sweet, brown sugar aroma. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Big, stable light brown head. The flavour starts off roasted, turns sweet, like brown sugar, and ends with a bit of sourness. Good sweetness with a hint of alcohol to balance.

JorisPPattyn (8224) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2007
Draught Huge, dark-beige head, very dense; very dark burgundy-red beer. Nutty, meaty, very estery and yeasty brew. Sweet nose, but the meaty notes get realy imposing; Nutty taste again, very sweet hazelnuts on cheap Marssala. Retronasal dark malts, earthy, as well as leafy. Very slick, rather well-bodied, aftertaste with more sweet cheap port-like,fading flavours. It’s probably pleasing to the masses.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at Cambrinus. Brugge, April 2008. Noticeably better balanced than the blond. Dark brown with a lasting tan head. Smooth and easy drinking. Some residual sugar but not too sweet. Touches of caramel, liquorice and raisiny fruit. Not packed with character but perfectly pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Tap, Cambrinus, Brugge, 15/02/12. Garnet with a slim cap of foam. Pretty lush Vimto and Burdock aroma. Berry and red boiled sweet, Vimto character. Lacks a bit of malt back up, but tasty stuff.
