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.
