Cimbasso (361) - - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a hazy tawny brown with a white head. Toffee and raisin taste with a very full mouthfeel. Great, complex flavours with an aftertaste reminiscent of a dark rum. This is an excellent winter ale. Thanks to Holmen 1 for the bottle!

tricksta_p (2087) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma of dark malt, caramel, raisins, hint of chocolate, dark fruity notes, alcohol. Flavour is sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Body and aroma are okay but I’m not a fan of such ultra sweet beers.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB Summer 2016, large sample. Cloudy brown color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, spicy yeast, raisin, slight fruity. The raisins make it smell like an aged belgian dark, although it’s not aged at all, seeing the BB date. Slight sweet in taste, lots of raisin again. Aroma is a bit more complex, but flavor is all about raisins. Interesting stuff, though a bit one-dimensional.

Reffs (2) - Roskilde, DENMARK - APR 28, 2015 does not count

nihtila (1832) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
24.1.2014. Kuohui pullosta ulos! Tuoksussa karamellista mallasta, rusinaa ja pihkaa. Maku on melko makea, kypsää hedelmää, rusinaa, hentoa yrttisyyttä. Makeutta on hieman liikaa, mikä tuntuu varsinkin jälkimaussa.
