Bottled, 330ml aged 7.2yrs. Dark brown with cream head. Fruity, wine like aroma leading to a smooth, slightly sweet, caramel body. Fruity, damson, prune with hints of port. Lasting and warming, the alcohol is hidden away quite well, full and pretty decent.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2011
33cl. Brune, col épais beige. Arôme de levure belge, malt grillé avec caramel et une once de torréfaction. En bouche, une très belle surprise pour un palais bien développé. Malt grillé avec une levure douce et arrière-goût presque mielleux. Sucre brun, caramel avec une pointe de biscuité. Profile houblon reste en retrait et n’ajoute qu’une amertume modérée.

sthlm (1231) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2011
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is big on raisin and port wine--must be an older bottle. Taste really reflects the aging as well, with lots more raisin, dark fruits (plum and blackberry in particular), mild bitterness, and barley at the end. Surprisingly, virtually no cardboard. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, I didn’t have high hopes, so this was a nice surprise. Not sure what they were going for when it was fresh, but this has aged very nicely, and I really enjoyed it.
