18-JUN-2012, draft @Un Mare di Birra. Dark brown with tan head. yeasty nose with bread and dried fruit. Taste is malty with bread, figs, and a little port. Nice one this... But actually I think the "fresh" version is better than this.

Keg from La Capsule at Un Mare di Birra. Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a small tan head. Nose is big caramel, prunes, sweet pastries, dark fruit and molasses. Taste is sweet at first, but brings about a slightly tart and slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth but becomes more lively the longer it’s on the pallet. The body is heavy and the aftertaste is long. Solid, but I still like the regular version better.

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with ruby highlights and a thin beige head. The nose is spice, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, prune, plum, port, varnish and pear drops. The taste is full of dark fruit: plum, prune, raisin, as well as port, warming alcohol, chocolate, earth, caramel, chewy malt, wood and spice. Full body and moderate carbonation. Complex, good depth of flavour and brilliant balance. More please...

CanIHave4Beers (3673) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 7, 2012
At the deleeium cafe. This here sample was on draught. Pours a pretty dark brown with a medim sized head & some lacing on the glass. The aroma is rich and sort of boozy, plum & fortified wine all around with some mild roastiness & chocolate. The flavor is excellent, the combination of mild roastiness & dark fruit works well. The beer is nutty & lightly sweet & the alcohol while certainly noticeable is well integrated. Plum & dark fruit are a big part of this here beer.

33cl bottle from trade with tderoeck, shared with Dutchdrebus. Very dark brown opaque color, small off-white to beige head. Smell malts, liquorice, port or some other liquor, dried and overripe fruits, some slight sweetness and a slight fruit-bitterness. Very nice complex but balanced aroma. Taste malts, dried and overripe fruits, raisin, walnuts, liquor and wood. Fantastic mouthfeel....superbly balanced!
