Pours dark brown with a beige foamy head.
Nose and taste of sherry, toffee, yeast, Burnt sugar, raisins,alcohol.
Taste: same but with some maple syrup, spices
thin body (and that for 10% abv ), medium carbonation.
The thin body gives the idea something is missing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Reddish-amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee, brown sugar and cherries. The flavor is also quite fruity. I get a lot of caramel and dark fruit notes, but those are accompanied by some brown sugar and Belgian yeast. Very sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear copper pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of bready yeast, spicy and malty with brown sugar and some licorice. Flavor is quite sweet, huge carbonation and a thick body. Spicy but smooth. Well drinkable, but not very outspoken.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark amber color. Butter cookies and maple syrup in the aroma. Sharp alcoholic sweet flavor with some distant vinous notes and butterscotch. Oaky aftertaste. Not unpleasant but limited in depth.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, somewhat over date (bb 15 Sept. 2012). Brown color. Beige head, sticky, with some dark spots in it. Aroma’s: sweet malts, sugar, sweet & sour fruit, raisins, sweet spices, with red fruit/berries retronasal. Flavor is sweet, a bit alcoholic. Body is actually rather thin (for a 10%er). Not much happening in the finish. Nothing to do with a Bière de Garde. Not very exciting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, ruby amber colour with a big and beige foamy head. Yeasty, bready and mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of candy, raisins and a tinge of alcohol. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Bready toast-malty taste with caramel and mildly vinous fruity notes of raisins, cassis and plums; sweet and delicately bitter finish with present fruity notes and a warming alcoholic strength. My favourite Jessenhofke so far. 21.II.13
