Bottle from Muckey’s. Dated 2013-06. Pours out jet black with a thin tan head that fades to nothing quickly. Sweet earthy aromas and flavors. High alcohol nose. Decent hop balance. Long sweet finish. OK

kappldav123 (5888) - GERMANY - JUL 4, 2016
Huge thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Alcoholic-sharp aroma. Starts very strong and quite alcoholic, burning, roasted malt. Earthy notes, a bit woody. Sweet. The alcohol is not well hidden. Finish warming, burning, unbalanced. Not good.

rodenbach99 (4208) - 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.
