29th November 2010.
On tap at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam. Very dark brown beer, massive tan head. Licorice and a little toffee. A dash of cream and some aniseed and spice. Whisper of tangy fruit. Not bad but as usual with the Kasteel beers I was left underwhelmed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. An unclear, brown body is topped by a fingerthick beige head. The aroma has dried fruits, mostly raisins, caramel, alcohol and something herbal. Pleasant but not impressive. The same goes for the flavor, it’s mostly dried fruits here as well, and some caramel and alcohol fighting to be noticed. It’s warming, full-bodiedand effervescent on the palate, with the dried fruits and caramel lasting for a good while. Overall, sure a nice one, but a tad too warming I think. 130508
