Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
My 300th Belgian beer!!
Poured in my Trappist glass. A clear dark raisin-brown colour with a steady, creamy off-white head on top. Medium lacing. Aroma has slight roasted caramel, Belgian sugars and slight port. Nice, well-rounded mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with a definite malty presence, bread, biscuit, caramel and burnt tones. Finish is relatively vinious with a peppery bitterness at the far end. Very warming sensation, really soothing a sore throat, I have.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
very beautiful clear red with a thick solid light brown head. must be filtered, but i must admit it looks super nice.
mild fruity sawdusty hoppy aroma, red berries seem to dominate.
flavor is red berries, cherry, wood? (is it aged??), caramel, malt, very faint "american" style hops like flavor (not sure what it is), also lots of sweetness and dark fruits. faint spices, alc sensed as a spice, strange metallic tinge to the flavor that i don’t like, but overall tasty and intersting.
