(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, reddish brown with a tiny beige head. Fantastic vinous aroma with accents of dried fruits. Quite full-bodied with plenty of sweet, roasted malts and extremely delicious notes of dried fruits - raisins in rum. Very subdued bitterness. 110308

FatPhil (14125) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 330ml bottle (Bierkoning, Amsterdam)
Very dark, fizzy dark beige head. Burnt bitter aroma. Chocolatey taste in part, but also a sticky drying burntness yet without a particularly full body. Tannin finish.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (7:4:7:4:13=3.5)
Fruitier taste, less drying in the finish, sweeter and more moreish, covers the alcohol very well.

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 13, 2008
Hey - I like this. The best of the Schelde beers I’ve had to date. Thick dark brown to look at, more meal that drink perhaps. Nose screams of oyster stout; sweet malts, funky, old fish oil, with a touch of vineagar. Aromas are faithfully replayed into the palate. Nice zinging oyster sauce / vinegar note. Feels lighter that the 8.5% labelled, and perhap more Belgian Ale than stout?

yespr (40864) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with a reddish hue and a dense off-white head. Aroma is what I now seem to sense as Scheldebrouwers yeasty with a touch of dried fruit and slight chalky. Very subdued light roasted. Flavour is mild and smooth chocolate malty with a touch of dried fruit. Nice lingering finish, somewhat simple but nice.

TrefwoordPunk (983) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark brown with a small head and an earth aroma with hints of caramel. The flavor has ripe fruits, smoke, caramel, coffee, dark choclate, some sourness and brown sugar. A very nice bitter finish. Nice beer!

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2008
(33cl bottle) Hazy, dark mahogany colour with a mid-sized, beige foamy head. Sweet and berry-fruity, slightly toasty malt aroma with hints of liquorice and a whiff of caramel. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter flavour, just medium bodied, soft on carbon. Toasty malty and fruity taste with notes of chocolate; moderately dry, bitter-sweet and slightly toasty and a bit slim, slightly spicy finish.
