Hazy warm brown colour, good off-white head. Taste is mostly wine! Some raisins and dried fruit, alcohol. Good carbonation, full body. Taste is a bit onesided (wine) for a better rating.

Aroma is quite sweet and has some hints of dark fruit. Smooth and easy to drink despite the high alcohol level. Falvour has a nice level of sweetness. It’s quite fruity and malty.

Color looks a little like copper. Strong smelling beer, don’t know what exactly. Tastes weird to me, a little like sour candy I sometimes bought when I was 10 or something. Very weird beer this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 33cl. A clear one, dark amber in color and with a big, creamy, off-white head. The aroma feels sort of unclean, with hints of something reminiscent of dms, along with the raisins and cellar that are the most evident aromas. Unfortunately the same goes for the flavor, which has a caramel maltyness as a backdrop. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate. Although not all bad, it’s a beer I won’t drink again unless someone offers me a glass. 110311

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle frm Asao. Caramel aroma, some dried fruit, iron, maybe pears. not particularly fragrant but ok. dark orange-brown with a huge, foamy, rocky head. Caramel, raisin flavor with a bit of tangy fruit like sour cherry but not quite citrus. Lots of iron, and a bit of chocolate too. fruity-sweet, though not too much, wiht mostly alcohol to balance. The burn at the finish probably is not due much to hops. Nice enough, though a bit too fizzy and metallic. Strong, and not at all like a dubbel.

Bottle at home. Dark hazy brown to copper color, thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, sugars, spices and some roasted malts. Flavor is sweet sugary malts, alcohol, some cinnamon, a hint of cardamon, molasses and spicy hops. Lively carbonation and thick body. Simple but OK brew.
