It has been a while since I drank this beer. Darker color is appealing, good smell, taste stays a while.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty aged sample Compact, but fluffy head, leaving some lace, and with a strange pistacchio shine; dark amber beer. Vanilla, spices, earth and very malt-sweet nose. Portwine, wood, and a glimpse of sourishness, all overflowed by a rather oppressive sweet liquorice flavour. Somehow I get pistacchio (no salt). Is it suggested by the colour of the head, or is there really something there? Caramel and cucumber (that sounds really British). Rather slick, but not very much body. Aftertaste leaves a lot of sweetness. Not really great - wasn’t great when young neither.

Bottled in 1998, tasted in 2003. Still a medium sized frothy head. Sherry and coffee aroma. Sherry flavor, with milk chocolate, caramel, Tia Maria liquor and cherry. Bitter finish, texture has become a bit watery. Still a decent beer, after those five years.

What i remember from this beer, is that it was a nice darker beer, in the ’proeftijd’ series. It was specially brewed by the brewer, to his personal taste. And it was good!
