2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 330ml, aged 7.5yrs from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn, Norfolk. Dark amber to ruby with no head. There is a spicy, malty aroma from this but that’s as good as it gets, the body has some big alcohol notes, apricot, peachy then with a flat port wine character. Heavy and a touch brackish. Not for me.

9/13/2007 2:30:09 PM Bottle from BierKoning. Dark brown colour, little head. Caramel, sugary nose. Wheaty, chocolate and sugary flavour. Fruits come in later. Then ends in sort of a licorice and alcohol taste. Can appreciate but not bowled over.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical ’massive ale’ already made by the Scheldebrouwerij when they were still in the Netherlands and referring to an old brewing tradition from Bergen-op-Zoom close to the Belgian border. Thick, yellowish white, firm head over a very dark burgundy, cloudy beer. Aroma rich maltiness, dates, orange, chocolate, port wine, caramel and liquorice but above all a lot of coriander. Full malty, sweet and chocolatey taste, candied fruits, apple, soft with tingling carbonation, orange touch, strong drying coriander, finish a bit sticky, florally hopped and warming but not astringent alcohol. Well-balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home best before june 2010. Hazy dark amber to brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is cardboard with spices, red wine, dust and old malts. Flavor is slightly sweet, quite malty with nuts, caramel and toffee, dusty and a little old. Gets better after a few sips. Low carbonation and a creamy texture. Not really my cup of tea.
