rodenbach99 (3976) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Une petite bouteille 2013/06. Un liquide brun qui ne fait pas beaucoup de mousse. Un nez de caramel, de sucre et de cassonade. La bouche est sucrée avec des notes de caramel et de cassonade. C’est évidemment sucré mais ça n’écœure pas. Simple mais efficace.

drpimento (2863) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2015
I have a bottle brewed in 2013 that seems to have been properly handled. Aroma was dark malts, roast, toffee, bit of licorice. Flavor’s similar to nose, not too sweet, but does have a bit of medicine in the finish.

tomer (2668) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 25, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, cloudy light brown to red color, aroma of dried fruits, strawberry jam and a hint of sour bread, flavor of jam cake, alcohol creeping in. Unbalanced, much too sweet and not really good.
