Deep amber to brown colour. Cool special caramel aroma with light nuts notes maybe. Very reach malty taste with reisin, caramel, and nuts is balanced with noble european hop bitterness especially in aftertaste where you can feel grass and herbs. This beer is really great one! Close trappist quad or strong dubbel (like westmalle).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy brown color, minimal off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, berries, malt and caramel. Very pleasant taste which is similar to aroma; dark fruits, some brown sugar, even oaky notes and some spices. A bit boozy. Medium to heavy sweetness. Full bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. An unclear, brown beer with a small, beige head that lasts. The aroma is biscuity, roasted and bready, with licorice and heavy caramel sauce. Some alcohol. It’s full-bodied and warming, lightly sticky on the palate, with a good bitterness. Perhaps a bit heavy on the palate, but sure tasteful. Roasted malts, chocolate, caramel sauce, nuts, bread crust and quite a lot of hoppyness. Resiny, almost mint-like. Warming alcohol too. Lasting roasted finish with a good sweetness, but sure enough not bitterness and alcohol to deal with it. A flavorful, lovely beer that I would very much like to repeat. Unbalanced, in a balanced way. Lovely. 141231

Thanks to Agate. Bottle from Munich.
Pours hazy brown to amber with small, beige top, min lasing. Aroma- intense malty sweet, caramely, berries alike, a bit boozy at the beginning, but later it dissapears, pleasant aroma with good hops presence. Flavor quite the same except some dark, roasted malts notes. Sweet and hoppy, medium to heavy bitter. Medium+ body, light dry finish. Only small size of bottle makes a bit sad.
