4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: moderate cherry aroma with raisin and leathery overtones.
Appearance: small, fizzy, light-brown initial head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Hazy, flat, red/brown body.
Taste: complex. In the initial flavor, I detected a moderate, bread-like and raisiny taste with a hint of alcohol. The finish is lightly sour and also raisin-like. Duration is longer than average.
Palate: light body, dry texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish.
Overall: unique and very interesting. I like it.

Pours a clear amber-brown colour with a beige head. Nose isn?t too inviting. Taste is mainly sweet with caramel, chocolate, raisins and plums but gets a nice balance from a little bitterness, malts and some spices like nutmeg. Taste doesn?t last long. Medium bodied, quite lively carbonation.

Dunkelbraun, trüb, mäßiger Schaum. Kräuteriges Malzaroma, etwas nach Laub. Zuckrig-süßer Geschmack, etwas Würze des dunklen Malz und ein plörriger Abgang. 08/15 Dubbel ohne bleibenden Eindruck!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a completely cloudy light brown with a lot of suspended solids, thick long lasting creamy off white head that leaves fair sticky lace. Aroma is brown sugar, dark dried fruits, molasses, and overall just fairly sweet. Flavour is caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and dark dried fruits(raisins mostly). Fairly sweet though surprisingly I really enjoy this.
