3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark tan color with a tinge of blood. Earthy caramel and alcohol aroma. Taller tan head. Light malt and nut sweetness Earthy cobwebs and mild alcohol finish. Light and airy on the palate. Alcohol a bit to present in this one to rate higher. Seems more like an amber malt liqour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew marked best before April of 2006 poured a large sized head of long lasting fine to large sized white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mild with smooth malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly smooth and contained vinous notes that mellowed in the finish. The flavor was mildly vinous with malty and hoppy notes.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a very attractive beer - deep, clear amber color, with a huge, frothy, off-white head - yeasty, spicy, fruity aroma - flavor is tart up front, quickly making way for some mildly sweet fruit, some spices and lots of cookie-like, bready qualities - a subdued hop presence comes in the finish to compliment the spicy qualities - this beer does, however, fall short in some respects - the mouthfeel is a tad watery, and the flavor, while good, tends to be a bit thin at times, esp. in the finish - still, quite a nice Christmas beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, spicy, marzipan aroma with some barnyard temptations. Clear, mahogany-brown with off-white/tan head that recedes to cover. Smokey character to the lightly spiced, licorice-like flavour. Medium body and fairly full carbonation. Though there is a lot going on, it seemed rather subdued and perhaps a bit simple. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.
