77ships (3546) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2013
25 cl. bottle @ Kulminator. BBF 23/09/2006 – 2005 Vintage? 2004? Older? Dark brownish Bordeaux with some light mocha bubbles. Oxidized nose, syrup, coco-cola with some faint grounds / chocolate. Taste is too sweet for me, syrup, coco-cola, lightly oxidized, touch syrup, berries, sweet cherry candy, sugar, sourness is light in the back. Too syrupy + sweet for what I prefer for the style & far too simple, lacks complexity. Ehh…

kraddel (2716) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2013
bottle ( 2005 vintage ) at kulminator pours very dark red, no foam . smells aged ( in a good way, as always at kulmi ) sweetness vs sour taste is still very nice ! typical fob , LOVE it ! with a rather fruity-based side ( even after 8 years) aged FOB = epic !
