Kolor: ciemno bordowy, burgundowy, na szczycie ogromna be?owa piana. Aromat: ?liwy s?odkie i sma?one, wi?nie w s?odkiej zalewie, karmel. Smak: jest troch? delikatniej ni? w aromacie, cho? bardzo podobnie. Lekka kwasno?? wi?ni, popió?, pieczone ?liwki i ponownie karmel tym razem nieco przypalony. Ca?o?? jest idealnie u?o?ona, nic nie przeszkadza, niczego nie jest za du?o ani za ma?o. Goryczka: tylko na finiszu, lekko pikantna. Wysycenie: ?rednie, wed?ug mnie pasuje. Alkohol nieznacznie zaznacza swoj? obecno??, nie przeszkadza.

rarbring (2259) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2015
Aroma: Smell of sweet fruity marmalade and some overtones of sherry.
Appearance: Light amber, nearly orange clear fluid. A rather strong foam that recedes into a fine lacing. Small bubbles.
Taste: The taste is very sweet, and dominated by fruits, like orange, but also some sherry tones both in taste and alcoholic presence.
Palate: The beer is pleasant to drink, nicely carbonated.
Overall: Goes very well with a strong cheddar I dare say.
Note: bottle Reviewed 2009-12-18.

Patdelichte (211) - - NOV 23, 2015
Delft 23-11-2015 (drankgigant) Ouderwets etiket. Kastanje bruine kleur met mooie schuimkraag. Hele verassende smaak. Had een wat standaard bruin bier verwacht maar is vrij uniek. Ruikt lekker zoet, smaakt fruitig en neigt zelfs een beetje naar wijn. Perfect voor de donkere wintermaanden! Top!

Moolesen (477) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Brown with a tanned head. Yeasty aroma with some dried fruit and at the end some orange peel. Slight metallic taste (disturbing) but also a very rich taste with lots of jam and dried fruit. No hops discovered. Rather long finish which is medium sweet.

Shark_Pants (608) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2015
Clear cola colour with frothy beige head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dried figs, dates, plums. The taste is fortunately less sweet than the smell - the dark fruits from the aroma are all there, cherries too, toffee, solid earthy hop bitterness to help counteract the sweetness. The light to medium body and lack of stickiness also helps offset sweet flavours. 9% ABV unnoticeable. Solid belgian strong.
