UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 2006 rating: Dark ruby-brown with a big and lively off-white head. My initial impression of the aroma is champagne. That’s the closest I can come to describe that combination of earth, alcohol and fruit. The flavour is quite sweet, with a dry note of wood and licorice.
BB July 2010, bought 2006. Seems like the character has shifted to darker fruits and some walnuts. Flavour is much the same though.

Draught at De Zolder, Brugge. Magnificent dark red brown hued with a doughy thick head. I found the draught to more flavoursome than previous bottles, there was whiskey like malt, oak, late tobacco and some banana. Luckily it wasn't carbonated and when it had warmed somewhat it gave out a delightful alcohol glow. Great beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intense aroma of hops, chocolate, yeast, porto and fruit (apple, raisins). Very full bodied. Sweet, malty taste with porto, some fruitiness and a alcohol burn. A bit tart. The aroma is more intense than the flavor. Nevertheless a complex and delicious beer, well worth looking for.
