Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass black, nice head. Strong aroma. Starts strong, quite alcoholic-fruity. Has a fresh-alcoholic note with fruity touches that reminds me of a champagne. Well balanced finish, a bit milder and less alcoholic. Very interesting.

langeveld12 (202) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2012
Small light brown creamy head that quickly disappears. Body is flat, dark ruby red. Aroma of fruits (cherries, lemon), spices, caramel and roasted malts. Also some alcohol. Flavor initially quite sweet and light acidic, to finish sweet and light bitter. Body is medium with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall a bit too much of the alcohol which makes it unbalanced. Still ok, though.

Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam
Beautiful dark amber, mahogany color with creamy head. Caramelly and sweetish beer, with a bit too much fusels character, alcoholic, boozy.

Vaiz (3266) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy dark brown pour with a reddish hue. Tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, some roasted malts, bready yeast. Flavor is raisins, sugary malts, some roasted malts, licorice, a hint of brandy and a bit alcoholic. Quite powerful and clean. A bit on the sweet side, but still well drinkable. Decent brew.

Bottle@tasting, 33cl. Tasted 2 years: 2011 & 2012. Head: beige colored foam (2012), almost no head (2011). Color: clear ruby brown. Aroma: roasted malt, hops, laurel (2012), alcohol (2012 only). Taste: roasted malt, hops, bitter, alcohol (2012). Palate: dry, medium body, bitter finish (2011), alcohol finish (2012). Overall: The difference is remarkable. 2011 is developing very nice, where 2012 is too young. would be nice to compare these two again next year..
