4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge brown head. Cane sugar sweet and dry fruit aroma, yeast notes providing some spice notes too. Thick mouthfeel. Liqourice, spicy, dried fruit, sweet sugarish flavour in a lovely heavy blend with clear alcohol notes. Nice bitterness giving the beer a solid sharpness throughout and fresh fruityness into the sweet and bitter finish. Warming alcohol feel, not burning in anyway, rather well hidden. Very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Vintage 2004. Pours a clear, warm amber golden with a dense, beige head leaving some lacework. Very complex, vinous aroma with notes of raisins in rum. Sweet and full body with flavours of dried fruit, vanilla and brown sugar - and again a touch of rum. Not overly sweet and the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden in spite of the total lack of bitterness. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and soft. 140307

Bottled. Cloudy red-brown colour with a huge beige head.
Acidic aroma with lots of dried fruit, wood, spices, tobacco and chocolate.
Very complex sweet flavour, with lots of dried fruits, tobacco and chocolate.
Reminds me a bit of Rochefort 10, but this one is sweeter and much better.
Thanks Jeppe for getting this beer to Denmark and thanks lachesis for brewing this great beer.
Definately one of my favorite beers.

The color is a very dark amber, clean, with generous and creamy head. The aroma shows some oxidization, more than the flavor though; it’s malty, sweet; the bitterness is all gone. Still good, but probably at its limit.

Dark color, almost black; the head, initially medium sized, reduces ot a thin but persistent layer. Good aroma, very mature, with some caramel and chocolate. It has a good body, with caramel and malt flavor, medium sweet, liquor-like, with tobacco leaves; mature, but also a bit fruity, harmonious and complex at the same time. The alcohol feeling is more evident. It has almost no bitterness. Very interesting, but I think it may be even more in 5 or 6 years.
Cloudy brown color. Very nice aroma, some Madeira, Porto wine. Sweet, malty, round, complete, almost fruity. Great!

Strong taste - filling mouthfeel - light warmth. Surprisingly little alcohol flavor. A bit highly carbonated. Long finish!!!!!! Up there with the best!
