2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy amber. Aroma of yeast, bubblegum, some fruity esters, spiciness and a bit of malt. Sweetish flavor with yeast, fruits, some malt, and a spicy and slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Troebel, bruinrode kleur. Weinig aroma. Smaakt vlak en behoorlijk zoet met een vleug zure azijn en wat zoet fruitigs. Niet zo mijn ding.

33 cL bottle from Beers of Europe into an Achel glass. Dark red brown, with a bit of head that then disappears rapidly. Sweet-buttery aroma. Bitter-sweet, smooth, tasty. A touch tangy, and moreish. Tastes somewhat spiced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful orange red beer with a good white head. Smells a bit cheesy and sweet. Taste is medium sweet. To sweet and a bit bitter on the finish. Dont like the bitter finish on this one but the redt off the palate is nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample of an 11 years old (2002) one @ZBF ’13.
Aromas of coffee, caramel, overripe prunes, sour.
Pours brown, cloudy, tan normal head quickly fading. Some sediments.
Coffee, caramels, toast with marmelade.
No carbo, light alcohol warmth, full taste. Refreshing for a dark beer, yet a bit of the vinous warmth. Aftertaste is short.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful clear amber/reddish colour with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and spices. Taste is quite sweet - and like the aroma with fruits. Mouthfeel is full and it has a short bitter aftertaste with lots of alcohol in it. Not bad.
