De color marrón oscuro algo rojizo y a trasluz es transparente. La espuma es de textura cremosa y color beige claro. Forma bastante cantidad que al principio se deshace con rapidez pero deja una capa media al principio que se mantiene. Al final queda casi la misma capa que al principio, que aunque está un poco mermada se mantiene densa y llena toda la superficie. Deja además el vaso medianamente manchado. De aroma medio con notas de caramelo, fruta madura y especias como la vainilla y el clavo. De cuerpo medio-alto y carbonatación media-abundante. El sabor empieza con un dulzor medio con notas de especias y madera. Al tragar se nota el alcohol no es agresivo y tiene bastante dulzor de fruta seca, como pasas e higos. Se nota un leve amargor de la malta tostada. El final deja sabor de especias aromáticas y picantes. Además destaca la malta tostada con recuerdo de madera. El postgusto es dulce y alargado. Predomina sabor de fruta madura y tiene un punto de acidez que deja recuerdo de medicamento. Al pasar el rato queda un sabor acaramelado que está al borde de hacerse empalagoso. Se recomienda servir fresca 6-8º C en copa tipo cáliz.

Copenhagen 21/9 2014. 33cl bottle. Pours dark brownish copper with light brown head which slowly subsides. Aroma is strong and does not hide the alcohol content. Not much chocolate as promised - rather bitter notes. Prickly mouthfeel. Taste is very sweet with raisins and alcohol notes. Too sweet for me.

baraciisch (2157) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Gentle sweet aroma, slightly nutty without much head... Sweet flavor, not much bitterness to balance, dull flavor overall... Not much on palate, not high on my list of dubbels this trip, but okay... Not very complex
