On tap somewhere in Amsterdam. Body is deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma is malt, dry fruit and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is sweet malty, dry fruit like figs and dates. Complex with a warming alcoholic finish, great for a nightcap.

Nice overall, but a few strange quirks. Perhaps a bit too sweet, not much aroma at first.

Bottle, thank you very much jbrus. Warm rusty red with little tan head. Smells sweet with caramel, flan, and custard aromas. Low carbonation, good quaffable body. Interesting flavor profile with slightly chalky finish. Sweetness does not become cloying. Is nuanced. Quote Oakes "A Dutch take on an old ale" suits it perfectly-mature, solid, with strong Dutch character!

Pours a murky brown colour with almost no head and a small amount of carbonation.
Smell is grassy and also very much like a dubbel beer, sweet and bitter mixed greatly.
Taste is very good and clean, clearly some malts and hops there with some vague fruits.
Goes down very nice, no trace of the alcohol.

This tastes too much like red wine for my taste. Someone who likes their beer to taste like dark fruits might enjoy this, but it’s not for me.
