2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2007 bottle, 750 ml with caged cork. Ready with a big Duvel glass in case of a gusher… but nope, not a problem this time. Pours reddish brown, fizzy like a soda, thin head. Smell is, um, like a rubber inner tube in the glass! Definitely, this got corked like a red wine. But a light herbal quality in the bottle. Wha hoppen? Okay, I can get past the nose and sip some of the beer, which is not as herbal as, well, other traditional ales, in fact, milder than some other old beers I’ve kept too long. So beyond the spoiled nose I find a slightly fruity ale, not too spicy and herbal, with a slight bit of tart marred by too much horseblanket. It’s a sign. I need to clear out my cellar!

330 ml bottle. Hazy dark red colour with stable head off. Aroma of herbs, spicy, sweet. Taste of elderflower, spices, too much sweetness. Don´t know what to think about this beer, aroma of good, but it was really hard to drink this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Geruch leicht medizinisch, ein bisschen wie Campari. Zudem Sirup und Lakritz. Geschmack dann wie Lakritzschnecken und ein bisschen Schokolade. Kräftig, aber ausgerissen.

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.
