paulvanpelt (485) - Reusel, - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 Donkerbruin met rode gloed. Medium schuimkraag, waarvan een dun laagje overblijft. Complex en zoetzuur aroma: druiven, caramel, azijn, zure melk, ook duidelijk alcohol aanwezig. Ook wat gebrande mouten. Het zoetzure en de alcohol komen duidelijk terug in de smaak, samen met een prettige bitterheid. Complexer en beter dan Kasteelbier Donker.

330ml bottle from Saveur Biére - Deep ruby, thin white head. Nose is a boozy Christmas cake, loads of fruit, malt and caramel. Taste is helped by a nice oily rich mouthfeel, warming on the way down. Very rich, very indulgent.

bonkiedeaap (581) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large cream colored head, with nice carbonation. In the aroma tones of roasted malts, with fruity notes of plums and raisins. It reminds me of port. In the taste the sweetness of syrup, raisin and caramel is clearly present but gets more counterbalance from the roasted mild accents and the chocolate. The finish is mild and spicy with hints of nutmeg and anice.

0,75l bottle, Känguruh pub Vienna. Sweet, caramel, cake and slightly alcoholic aroma. Dark red/black color with a nice creamy head. Sweet, cake, caramel taste with overwhelming finish. Don’t try to drink it on hot sunny day.

phfyysik (449) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours dark brown with medium head. Aroma is sweet, sourish, light raisin, cardamom, a bit cinnamon, croissant. Taste is sweet, sourish, raisins, caramel, but still some sour bitter dessert, dry red wine. ABV is well hidden, but after taste contains some gastric fluid. Good and not too sweet beer.

martin00sr (2391) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Clear very dark red brown. Fizzy head, gone almost immediately. Yeasty, bready aroma. Brown sugar and some fruit. Flavour has caramel, dried fruit and a good deal of alcohol heat. Could have been better with more body to balance the alc.

penumbra59 (16) - Kontich, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2016
Version 2014, been in the cellar some time and it only got better. The scent was not very explosive but the taste was very much in balance. This one is a beer that gets better by age.
