COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

Bottle, thanks Eddan. Amber with a medium head. Quite a lot of toffee both in the aroma and taste. Also dried fruit, malt and light spices. Vinous and with warming alcohol.

Tan head that is two fingers in depth. Beer is a dark red/burgandy color. Tastes of chickory wood and cherries along with some other dark fruits. Very floral aroma. Nice malty taste as well as a medium mouth feel. Leaves a pleaseant aftertaste of cherries.

@ Basunen 15-1-31: ganska tydelig doft av kola. Smaken är ganska len med kola och nötter. Lite torr eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Tap pour into 12 oz tulip glass at Busters. Beautiful full finger or more head on a deep mahogany/plum colored beer. Lacing is strong. Aroma leans on tart fruit with some malty sweetness mixed in. Caramel and toffee with a pleasant but not overpowering sour quality you come to expect from Belgians. Silky, smooth mouthfeel. Definitely a rich beer with a heavy alcohol presence. Enjoyable beer from one of my favorite breweries.

TychoJames (343) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Flaska systembolaget 75 cl. Rödtonat brun kulör. Fruktig doft med russin och knäck. Möjligen lite kaffe också Smaken drar åt plommon, knäck och unga äpplen. Inte så söt som doften antyder.Ganska lätt kropp ändå. Torr avslutning
