Pours a clear dark brown with small tan head. Nice aroma of raisin, dark fruits, spice and a lot of alcohol. Taste is similar and quite sweet plus I get some liquorice.

2012 edition. 33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ traverse, Utrecht. My 400th rating. Pours dark brown with a tin, quickly disappearing beige head. Dark fruits, port and caramel in the aroma. Upon tasting there is also dark roasted malts bordering on coffee and chocolate. Furthermore raisins and more port. Some alcohol warmth but very gentile for a 11% ABV. Long lasting bittersweet aftertaste. A great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Aardbei, rozijnen en ander zoet in het aroma. Smaak is kersenbonbons, wat stroop en licht port. Nasmaak is licht port ook. Kraag is snel weg. Wordt wat beter naarmate temperatuur stijgt. 2012 editie. #2 2012 editie, smaak is zijde zacht, en nasmaak is prima warm lang. Smaak +1, palate +1

stevoj (2539) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 28, 2012
This rating is for the 2011 edition. Dark brown (almost black) brew, some hints of ruby red in the light. Powerful wine-like aroma exposes the high alcohol content. Flavors of prunes, figs, dried fruit and some alcohol burn. A good beer for a chilly evening...

smaak redelijke body met overheersende madeira toets, verder zoet en kruidig. redelijk maar te beperkte smaakevolutie

Bottled. Deep rubyish brown colour with a mediumsized creamy beige head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is raisins, plum, some spices, mild chocolate as well as some slight toffeeish and toasted notes. Flavour is rather similar with some slight yeasty and fruity notes. Smooth and rather wellbalanced. Mild vanillaish notes towards the finish.

Ughsmash (7248) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2012
2010 bottle, 11.2oz. Poured deep brown with a short-lived dusting of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up jammy dark fruits and a thick dose of yeast (black pepper and cloves mostly).. definite warmth behind it.. solid. The flavor found jammy dark fruit again plus some licorice at the core.. spicy black pepper, earth, cloves, and ripe banana around.. finished with a lot of yeast and a lot of alcohol over mostly dark fruit. Heavier-bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. kind of chewy at times.. good stuff, but I wanted a little more subtlety at times.

from Amstein - cloudy dark brown beer with a creamy and persistent beige foam; earthy and malty nose with hints of prunes; full-bodied and with some strong sweetness; fizzy , low bitterness; long fruity and malty aftertaste with some residual sweetness
