Drop wat de klok slaat. Zoethout oftwel glycerhizine in geur en smaak, onontkoombaar. Alles in balans, met tikkeltje venkel en vanille, en zelfs een hint naar rivella. Een score om heel af en toe van te genieten, van teveel drop wordt je ook misselijk. Kraag zakt snel in en carbonisatie had wat intenser gemogen.

Bottle at home, 30/07/16. Bought from Saviere Biers. Extremely sweet aroma, unlike a beer. More like dadelion and burdock (spelling) or such like. Murky dark toffee in appearance. Small amount of off-white head. Smooth, medium bodied. The spices come through, a hint of a burning sensation on the tongue. Sweet with an underlying bitterness. Medicine. Tastes like a alcoholic soft drink. Overall I am enjoying it.

Muddy brown pour with a very thin head that faded quick. Aroma is sweet, raisin like, maybe fig or plum too. Full mouth. Really sweet. Slight alcohol flavor and a rose water like quality to it. Dry finish, almost astringent even. Leaves your mouth feeling prickly. Sweet fruity notes of stone fruit and raisin. Toffee as well. A little bit of herbaceous quality as it warms. A little lace present.

Tayeth (528) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Geruch leicht medizinisch, ein bisschen wie Campari. Zudem Sirup und Lakritz. Geschmack dann wie Lakritzschnecken und ein bisschen Schokolade. Kräftig, aber ausgerissen.

Tiefbraun, trüb. Aroma süßlich alkoholisch mit Fruchtnoten. Im Geschmack leicht krätuerig, aber alkoholisch wärmend.

jgentgesdo (692) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Pours translucent brown with a moderate medium brown head. Nose is cherries, some sourness, a little mustiness. Very sweet, flavor is cherries, candied berries, heavy malt. No bitterness at all. Mild alcohol body. Oddly watery mouthfeel, with a little chalkiness. Overall I like it quite a bit.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. After dinner. Profile of a good Dubbel with hops replaced with odd (for me) yet pleasant mix of herbs that integrates very well. 6 months after BB date.

Absolute topper. Donkere kleur, stevig schuim. Anijs, drop, karamel en nog veel meer. Ideaal bier om bij diner te gebruiken.

Draft. Amber/brown with an off-white head. Herbs, alcohol, fruits, malt, soy, salt. Notable taste of alcohol and yeast. Aroma and flavour go well hand in hand.
