JorisPPattyn (8569) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2007
Dense but small beige head over ruby-red shot, very dark beer. Very perfumey, almonds, alcohol & higher alcohols, sugars and roasted notes. Human sweat, sweet malts, liquorice, a bit of cypress flavour and loads of dark malts. Very creamy, velvety texture, well-bodied & alcohol warming. Sweet and thick. Not bad, but not really great beer.

33cl bottle, BB 10/2013. Brune foncée, col beige avec une fine pellicule dorée sur le verre. Arôme de fruits noirs; cerise et datte, malt léger et une note de chocolat. En bouche, malt grillé, caramel et léger chocolat en poudre. Palais réchauffant avec ses 10.5%, pointe épicée rappelant la réglisse et laissant un fini liquoreux. Une pointe d’amertume houblonnée sur la fin.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. 900 litre production. My first beer from this brewery. Dark brown with a faint red hue, little beige head. Thick liquorish & sweet malty nose, faintly herbal, dried dark fruits. Taste is similar sweet brown sugar & liquorish, sweet spices, sweet herbs touch, dried dark fruits. Touch more substantial body, pretty nice brew.
