3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours medium brown with reddish tiny. Malty flavors, caramel and toffee. Definite spice, even if hard to distinguish what they are. Bottle seemed past it’s prime. Smelled moldy and musty at first, but better as it warmed. Not bad at all.

Brewed in France....... Pours a amber color with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, and figs. Taste of caramel popcorn, sweet malts and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is sticky sweet and easy to drink. I was expecting more form this brew but overall it is well balanced.

750ml bottle shared by BeerGestapo, thanks Mike. Poured with a dark amber body topped by a lasting large khaki head. It both smelled and tasted like Cracker Jacks, that it to say caramel and roasted nuts. Semi-sweet but not sticky or cloying.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged bottle (best before 1993?) at Den Stillen Genieter. Red colour, lots of sediment, small tan head. Cellar and fruit aroma. Dry, dusty flavours with port and fruit in the background. Body has become lighter with the years. A classic that ages well.
