3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown-red colour, beige foamy head. Aroma of red fruits and sugar, sweet. Thin but rounded taste with notes of raisins, plums and figs, candy, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate and a slightly spicy and acidic bitterness. The high alcohol grade is pretty well disguised. Thin bodied, medium-high carbonation. Body grows as it?s longer out of the bottle and coffee, chocolate, cherries and dried fruits get more prominent with a growing dry aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong dark beer. It’s nice in itself, but just too modest, it needs a more outspoken taste. This is too plain.

sample, rood/bruin met minimale witte kraag. aroma is enorm zoet, bruine suiker en rozijnen.
smaken zijn zoals verwacht redelijk zoet, matig bitter, zeer stek, redelijk fruitig (donker fruit), verder banaan en pruim, matig kruidig, medium body, glad in de mond, een echt herfst/winter bier

33cl - brown fluid, beige foam. Nose is simple with caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, candy sugar. Body is medium. Taste is dry-bitter with esters, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel and a touch of roastiness. Not so unforgettable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of sweet, candied, dried fruits like dates and raisins. Flavour has these elements too, quite sweet in fact but also with a woody dryness which balances it quite well. Seems like it could age well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a orangy hue. Light tan head. Bubblegum, pineapple, banana. Then coffee, chocolate, toffee and brown suger. Nice spices as well. Sweet, but balanced with a hint of tart citrus and a slightly bitter finish. Medium to thin bodied, later a bit more alcohol presence. Overall a nice beer, just as good as some more celebrated ones.

Bottle shared at ABC Beers tasting. Pours hazy brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of overripe fruit, caramel, dough. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied, thinner than expected with soft carbonation. Good but should be fuller bodied.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! Deep reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma is nice, light spicy like gingerbread, dark fruits, lots of raisins and dried currants. Flavour is more mouldy and yeasty, dried currants, burned caramel, light-bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied. Disappointing flavour imo.
