At a tasting, many thanks MrHangover, almost no head, quite clear dark brown colour, aroma of dried cherries and apricots, caramel and light oxidised notes, fruity sour flavour with woody and sherry notes, a bit too light bodied. Quite old but still interesting.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 33cl in a Trappist glass. Pours a wonderful dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and wonderful. The taste is toffee, caramel, malt and very (ginger)bready. Too sweet and sickly for the style and extremely susceptible to temperature.

Wow, packs a punch but doesn’t actually taste 11°. Great balance, sweet but dry enough to make it slip down very nicely. The best in bruge so far.

Bottle @john bull ålborg. Served too cold, but after waiting a bit a rich dark character shows. Notes of dark berries and bitter chocolate.

Pours dark brown with only a thin wispy head, which doesn’t seem right. Maybe a bad seal or it got shorted on the yeast? Fantastic caramel and plum aroma hits even before lifting the glass. Taste is similar with hints of roasted coffee. Feels a bit flat. Will definitely need to sample another bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mid to dark brown, reasonably translucent. A fair bit of carbs and khaki head. Full aroma of molasses and plum pudding. The taste is sweet but manages to stay rounded. There’s a full alcoholic kick as well. Very warming on a horrid January night.

Bottle, 11%. Good caramelly aroma, creamy with a distinct alcohol note. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small frothy off-white head. The flavour is sweet and alcoholic. Has a little tobacco and salt. Fruity notes in the finish. Warming alcohol, but not boozy at all.
