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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stubby 330 ml bottle, poured into a trappist tasting glass at home. ABV 10%
Deep red ruby colour on the body, with a short brige head on top, thin, with low retention, forming foam islands on the beer’s surface at the end. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma has lots of caramel malts, with a tad of dark fruits coming from the back, mostly plums but not as strong as I’d like.
The taste on the other hand is full of it, and next to the plums raisins, ripe pears, sugars. Nice and sweet, with the high alcohol well hidden.
Medium thin body, low carbonation that works as an advantage.
I got this in an organic/biologic goods shop and I didn’t expect much, but it turned out to be more than decent.
