33 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours deep brown with an amber hue and lacing light brown head. Solid malty and slight dried fruity aroma. Favour is sweet with a light note of brett and apple. Solid dark caramel malt base beneath. Finish is slight acidic brett lingering between the malt notes. Nice.

Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet spicy - ginger being most dominant, but also a light touch of chili, before a dry finish sets in. Thanks madsberg for sharing.

(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, amber coloured beer with a decent head. Unpleasant earthy, fusty nose. Taste mainly of cork and mildew. This bottle was definitely off. Pity. Needs a rerate sometime. 080102

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber beer, poor head. Nice malt aroma, sweet light liquorice. Rich body, malty, well balanced by bitterness; very light corky taste; a nice aftertaste of roasted malt, and some liquorice. Final pretty strong, not too much aromatic.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2010 Bottled, 25cl, 6% ABV. Dark brown with a reddish hue, topped by a huge, dense, beige head. A bit weak, but nice aroma with dried fruits, sugar and some alcohol notes. It is a bit watery, with flavors of sugar, malt, raisins and some sourness. Sweet finish with some vinous notes and hints of alcohol. I would like more body and maybe some spices, but it is worth a try though, and maybe worth putting away for some time. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.1. 061108
Bottle, 33cl. 9% ABV, 2009 vintage. A dark amber beer, hazy, and topped by a small, beige head. Raisins and other dried fruits on the nose, some buttery and sourish notes too. Figs, some yeast, caramel and sweetness in the mouth, full-bodied. Sweet finish with dried fruits. A quite nice one, definitely a step forward from the former two vintages. 100115
