De geur is echt niet goed maar de smaak valt heel goed mee. Een aanrader om eens te proberen

Fashawn (127) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
Buona birra, rossa carica e con un cappello di schiuma enorme. Bell’odore di frutti rossi e alchool, oltre che di caramello. Lo stesso in bocca, con una buona persistenza del finale. Secco, asciutto e lievemente citrico. Buona birra.

imdownthepub (10517) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2004
Bottled at The Kulminator, Antwerpen. Red brown beer with huge white head. This was on a promo for Halloween so we took the opportunity, slightly soulless lost beer with a strange mix of flavours, mostly a bowl of fruit but then a stabbing hop or an acidic malt. A cauldron full of oddities, which combine to a fairly bland finish. Ok but nothing ghoulish about it.

Dark red, hints of brown on color. Medium yellow head.Thin aroma: mildly sweet, chocolate and some skunkiness with mild alcohol. Flavor is better with sweetness, chocolate and caramel, ends with medium alcohol and licorice in aftertaste. Medium bodied.

Light brown color, little beige head. Skunky, sweet, mild caramel, chocolate and alcohol in aroma, still not very good aroma. Medium bodied. Overly sweet, caramelly flavor with hints of chocolate and strong alcohol in aftertaste. Some skunkiness in aftertaste too.

Smooth of medium duration head. Burnt red color; enough extinguished and little fizzy one. Light ash and burned wood scent. Slightly pungent taste with overpowering bitter and alcoholic notes. Lightly top heavy and long-lasting final.
