Bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht rokerig met caramel en koffie. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

red-brown tranparant color with off-white head. Warm smell of caramel, bread and licorish. Medium sweet taste with a slight more bitter after-taste (but still sweet). Feels a bit sticky and watery in the mouth. This is my style of beer, love it!

Ruby red with thin head. Smells of cherries and oak. Mild taste - a very mild version of the Belgian ales. Lacks character unlike the name.

TheJvd (935) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014
33 cL bottle at home. Best before January 2013. Pours hazy brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma has caramel, quite some dark fruits, raisins, malts and yeast. Taste is quite sweet with caramel, dark fruits, some yeast and a soft to medium bitter finish. Medium body and soft to medium carbo. Quite nice.

Bottle: This beer was brought to me by.....my wife, as a welcome to the Netherlands gift. It looks like dangerous brandy in the glass. Apple juice looking head. Nose of sugar coated malts. Body has an initial second of sweetness that touches upon booziness and the disapears entirely. Second half is thinned down and drier. Thine abrupt finish.

Cunningham (4999) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2014
Amber color with a beige head. Light roasted malt, caramel and light fruity nose. Light sweet and roasted flavor with a well balanced bitterness. Unusual mild and easy drinkable strong ale.

Slaz (55) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Red-brown with a white head that dissipates quickly. Smell and taste is like forest fruits combined with yeast and a hint of caramel, and aftertaste has some bitter and sweet tones. An easely drinkable beer for it?s kind.
