Reddish brown clear beer with blonde head. Aroma has toffeeish sweetness, malts, anise and yeast. Flavor is malty sweet and licoricy with some anise. Quite full palate with quite strong carbonation. Finish is malty sweet with feel of alcohol. Quite basic dark Belgian beer.

Olipa hyvä. Vähän liian lämmin. Mutta varmasti kannattaa toisenkin kerran koittaa. Nami.

adster (453) - HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2014
Vörösborszerű színben pompázó ital figyelemreméltó illattal, mely áfonyalekvár, péksütemény, mézeskalács könnyed aromáját rejti magában, mindezt rendkívül elegánsan, cseppet sem eltúlzottan, kóstolásra csábító titokzatossággal. Íze tökéletesen beváltja a hozzá fűzött reményeket: fantasztikus elegyét alkotja a legkifinomultabb zamatoknak. Vörös gyümölcsök, fekete szeder húsa adta visszafogott édesség és enyhe savanykásság érezhető egy üde karakterű, nagyszerűen eltalált szénsavtartalmú testben, miközben a komló lágy körvonala foglalja keretbe és teszi teljessé ezt a hibátlan ízélményt.

Dark color, high head. Once again overcarbonated. Carbonation killed taste of this beer. Aroma is malty with notes of spices. Bitter malty aftertaste.

Lambister (232) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Large bottle from Alko. Hazy dark brown color with small brownish head. Nose of sweet malts, raisins and plums. Taste has also sweet malts, plums and raisins which makes this even too sugary and syrupy to my taste.

langeveld12 (255) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
Pours an average frothy light brown head that slowly diminishes. Body is chestnut, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (hay, cookie, roasted malts, molasses), light hops (lemon, perfume), light yeasts (horse blanket) and cherry, dried fruits like grape or raisin and cola. Flavor is light acidic, then light sweet and finally light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Simple, yet enjoyable.
