Aroma of toffee and sweet fruits. Dark cloudy red brown in colour, with a small tan head. Very minimal lacing. Sweet to taste with a little hint of saltiness. Lively fizzy carbonation brings a creamy mouth feel to life.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget (40:-). Fruity and sweet malty, raisins and caramel, some nice alcohol notes, very complex, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is sweet and very fruity with alcohol notes.

Dark brown amber. Sudsy, quickly disappearing head. Tons of suspended black flake particulate even after handling and pouring gently. Best before 30.01.2018 Drank on July 7th 2014 Not sure what went wrong here. Beer may have turned do to bad storage conditions between brewer and me. I long awaited trying this beer with great expectations I gleaned from all the wonderful reviews. But those expectations were quickly shattered as soon as I opened the bottle. Bottle hissed nicely as cap was released but not much gas remained in the liquid and beer fell rather flat on carbonation. Sweet, syrupy, plum, brandy, low bitterness. I will have to re-rate this beer in the future. Very sad.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a deep brown, with a massive khaki head that dissipates into a disc, leaving good lacing. Nose is dark fruit, black currants, and caramel. Taste is black currants, raisins, and dark fruit, with a lot of different flavors. Gets more complex as it warms. One of the best beers I have ever had.

This is probably the best beer I have ever had. But then there is Westvlettere which is still an unknown but also a lot more expensive.

Black colour, nice perception, sweet beer, no burned malt is percibed, fruit and sweet flavour is percibed. Really nice trappiste style beer.

borre_m (211) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Pours a deep brown color, with a frothy tan head. Aroma is fruity with peach and apricot. Tasting you get a warming sensation from the alcohol, but its not much in the taste. Its malty and nutty.

chucklemation (404) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a dark, murky brown, with sediments floating, and with a foamy tan head. Aroma is intoxicating, perhaps my favorite aroma of any beer. I smell brown sugar, cinnamon, and dark fruits - mainly raisin. Flavor is sweet dark fruit, with a strong raisin aftertaste. The alcohol has a nice burn. Amazingly delicious.

Poured from bottle. Pours a rich brown color with thick head. Lots of rich malt flavors - caramel, dark fruits, and yeast. Very delicious and earns its high rating.
