On tap at BBF’12. Dark brown colour, creamy light beige head. Aroma is really Belgian, quite sweet and malty, dark fruits, light smoke. Flavour is all over the place, all sorts of flavours like smoke, berries, kandij, honey, molasses, juniper, rather sweet and sticky. Medium-bodied. Not quite convinced.

brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Heavy smoke and peat notes with a hint of burnt plastic. A bit of maple syrup sweetness, bread, and herbal notes, too. The flavor is quite smokey with some burnt wood and char notes. Juniper, mild fruits, plastic, and some maple sweetness. The smoke really dries out the mouth.

jmgreenuk (5289) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 29, 2012
Draft at Borefts '12. Dark mahogany pour with a glass hugging head and lots of lace. The aroma is of dates and mature raisins. The raisins are there in the rich semi sweet flavour too. There is no bitterness and nothing sits on the palate for too long. A great ale to taste, but might quickly become a little sickly after the first pint! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mørk lysebrun farge, urter og honning, tror haandbryggeriet har gått en smell her, smaker mer som fjernet enn øl
