3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle, bottled 2011. Pours a dark and deep ruby red with a small dark beige head that doesn’t last. Aroma is rather complex, rye bread, caramel, marshmellow, burnt sugar, fudge, alcohol heat and a touch of raisin. Lots of malty goodness going on. Nice. Taste falls a bit flat because the carbonation is sadly minimal, resulting in a thin and watery mouthfeel. Shame. Taste is sweet malt, dark fruit and alcohol heat with rye in the finish. Palate is a bit sticky. A is for awesome aroma, D is for disappointing otherwise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Des notes d’éthanol, de dattes, de prunes émanent de l’offrande. En bouche c’est parfaitement aéré, belle effervescence malgré son gigantisme. C’est rempli de raisins secs et de figues fraîches avec une finale mordante d’alcool et de végétaux.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning (at €10,-!). 2011 edition. Clear, deep dark brown color. Off white head that immediately disappears (and I tend to maintain my glassware well). Aroma’s: Sweet/dried fruit, molasses, alcohol. Retronasal also some caramel/toffee & lightly roasted malts. Flavor is sweet, caramel, sweet fruit, with some fruity sourness from the alcohol. Strong alcoholfeel, body is not too heavy, medium rather. Finishes somewhat dry on the tongue, with bready, malty sweetness. Nice to try but wouldn’t pay that again.
