It pours a light brown with a thick brownish persistent head. It is a little bitter at start but it doesn’t last long.

Sdaniel90 (322) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Clear ruby/chesnut with a thick tan head and epic lacing. Deep fruity aroma, with strong hints of roasted caramel and sour cherries, as well as fig, firewood and alcohol. Heavy and robust, with moderate to high carbonation. Light sweetness and bitterness, with a subtle but strong alcohol finish. Rich and warming, yet somewhat monotonic and overly carbonated.

Percy0103 (114) - MEXICO - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A dark chestnut beer with a big foamy head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, alcohol, caramel and maybe a hint of red fruits. Taste is bitter with a slightly alcoholic finish. Medium to high carbonatation and some astringency. The strongest part of this beer is the beginning and then it loses some strength, but not completely.

superspak (2464) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 8/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, toast, brown bread, molasses, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dubbel style. All around nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Rugamu (103) - SPAIN - JUL 5, 2014
Magnífica cerveza, con tonos afrutados, un color oscuro intenso y un aroma muy penetrante. En boca entra muy suave, dejando un sabor intenso por mucho tiempo. En resumen, gran cerveza que repetiré las veces que sean necesarias.

Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy, brown body with reddish nuances; large, frothy, tan head, fully lasting with nice lacing. Moderate malty (caramel, light roasted) aroma, with notes of red fruits (cherry), spices, alcohol, light coffee and licorice. Moderate-to-heavy sweet flavour, with light bitterness in the finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation; light alcoholic warming in the finish.
