Black beer, with tones of dark fruits, but yet with a hoppy note. Bit creamy as well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 300 ml at home, into a Trappist glass, ABV 10%
Deep red brown colour on the body with a small, light beige head on top, thi, with average retention, leaving light lacing around the glass and some foam islands on the beer’s surface.
Aroma has nuts, caramel, dark fruits with dates and light raisins, some ash too.
Taste is nutty, lots of dark fruits, sugar, the alcohol obvious but more on the finish actually, light caramel.
Medium body, soft carbonation.
Overall okay, I wouldn’t mind it being more intense though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, batch 2013 best within 25 years, large sample. Clear copper color with lots of tiny debris, short off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, molasses, some raisin, slight dark fruit, some ash and tobacco, hint of roast. Malty sweetness in taste, soft to medium bitterness. Finishes a bit dry as well. Huge body, quite chewy. In the end, a small alcohol burn. Massive feel. Wonder how it would age.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of plums, raisins, malts and molasses. Taste is bittersweet. very round and creamy mouthfeel. This one reminds me a bit of a Rochefort 10, although not as deep and layered. A very good beer nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful brown color with a faomy, yellow-ish head. Kind of weak aroma of sweet, raisins. Taste is medium sweet, plums, lots of alcohol, a little bitter. Medium carbonation and a long, almost medicinal, aftertaste. I was expecting more of this, but it’s enjoyable.
