My first impressions of this were not what I expected, however the further I got into the glass, the more it grew on me. It doesnít have the heavy richness of its big brothers, but rather a lighter mouthfeel that still has a great flavor profile. Plenty of head here, and it stuck around till the end. Primarily a yeasty nose and a malty body, with a surprisingly dry finish.

Murky brown, with yellow tints. Not much head. faint toasty aroma, with hints of cherry. Nutty, bready flavor, with notes of whisky and a slight buttery flavor. Noticeable alcohol burn, as well.

Deep dark brown with a good sized light brown head. Nice yeasty dark fruit aroma. Taste is very complex with dark fruits and malt sweetness with a nice earthy oak like bitterness that I really enjoyed, that made me favor this over the 10. Excellent

a very unusual brew to start with. poured dark brown colored with a tan head. i left my bottle sitting for a second, and the foam was coming out of the top. no biggie though. had a pretty nice smell, plums and yeasty mostly. taste was very different, almost unpleasent until after a few sips. taste was fruity and yeasty and it had a hint of a smoke flavor to it. this beer def. got much better as the glass was emptied. glad i got to try this one, yet to be disappointed by this brewery.

Didnít do it for me. Dark amber with a foamy off-white head and lots of tiny bubbles. Complex aroma of chocolate and fruit and candy sweetness. Smooth in the mouth with ample carbonation. Flavor was sweet, alcoholic, fruity.

wow... i love trying beers new to me. this is a real experience indeed! poured with a thin head but then i pour all beers very slow, even so a lot of floaties were seen. i detected a slight bannana scent at first but then more of a nutty/malty scent. another beer that for me is a bit more carbonated than i would like, but the overall flavor and complexity of this one counteracts the carbonation. damn, itís too expensive, about $5.95 a bottle but for a great treat every once in a while well worth it in my opinion! first timers seeing this bottle at the store may pass it up because of the lame/plain looking lable....but hey, donít pass this one up! grab at least two of these! in this case boring bottle= exciting drinking!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle best before 18/07/07. Deep garnet tinted beer with a huge rocky off-white head that settles back to a sticky lace. Malty brown sugar aroma, with a spicy and herbal quality. Notes of cassis and black licorice as well as tobacco and a vineous character. Flavour is also very malty with nuttiness, brown sugar and a cassis taste. Oaky, woody flavour as well as a dry fruity finish. Well-done but not as compelling as the 8 or 10.
