Raisins taste with caramel palate. Good balanced sweet nutes in palate and some bitter nutes makes this beer really interesting. White foam, disappearing very fast. Dark-cherry colour. Overall, good beer.

Drinking from a 33cl bottle. In the aroma cinnamon, raisins. The clear red brown beer has a white head. It’s a sweet beer, taste reminds me of caramelised pear and sweet liquorice. Low carbonation.

Drank with Rik and Lennart while watching wie is de mol. Too sweet. Very unbalanced. Too bad.

Mooi donker herfstbok. Smaakt zoet met caramel achtige invloed, weinig bitter. Zal niet iedereen bekoren vanwege de zoete smaak.

50 cl bottle, 6.6%, contains sugar and colouring agent (gah!). Red color, clear, big stable beige head. Nothing in particular on the nose. Aroma is malty with sugar, caramel and wet carboard. Taste is heavily sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, carbonated, fizzy. "meh".

33cl fles. Donkere kleur en een witte schuimkraag. Eerste smaakimpressie : koolzuur, caramel, hoppig. Nette afdronk.

500 mml can tasted on 25/01/2014. The colour is clear brown and the taste is oxidated (maybe for the can). I don´t like it. Next one please.

Nasty sweet beer, with an artificial taste. Like drinking licorice water. Blech.

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
Clear reddish brown pour with medium slightly tan head. Sweet malt aroma, caramel, burnt sugar and hidden yeasts. Yup, pretty sweet sugary first taste. Dark malts and it has a bit of a caramel feel to it. Thin to medium bodied and high in carbonation. Nice beer but too sweet and lacking body for my likings.

Sissio (407) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 24, 2013
Clear dark reddish brown, on tap in a bar in Maastricht. Sweet, sweet, too sweet for my taste. Roasted caramel and syrup, sweet also the aftertaste. Did not like it at all.

Bottle shared by Bobo, or Cuso, sorry guys! Aroma stale, oxidated. Clear amber-brown colour. Taste is plain, corny, alcohol. Finish is burning and metallic. Ruined.
