3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malziger, deutlich schokoladiger Antrunk, mit einigem Abstand folgt ein herbes Aroma. Die starke Karbonisierung täuscht eine Zeit lang über den schmeckbaren Alkoholgehalt hinweg, zum Ende zeigt er sich dann aber doch. Vollmundig, schokoladig, dabei erstaunlich hopfig, was aber vom Malz oft überdeckt wird. Etwas nussig, trocken erdiger aber stimmiger Abgang. Gut! 7/12/11/12//12

Bottle. The aroma of malt, wine and grapes, some Sherry. The large pale beige foamy head has a long duration, the body is nearly black. The taste is a nice balance between a light sourness and malt with a long duration, the finish is mild. The body is medium strong, creamy and fizzy with a lot of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Comes in a 4-pack with a best before date written on the cap, OCT2010. Pours a crazy off-white foamy head that has pretty good retention and leaves also foamy lacing. Colour is dark raspberry red with vivid carbonation. No sourness in the nose, just strong alcohol and some grain malt. Maybe some light cherries, but still not pleasant enough. Lots of red apples, like MacIntosh, in the taste with slight burn in the finish. Some raisins in aroma and flavours. An average brew, but will try back in a few years, as I have two more to cellar. For now, to strong for nothing.

Amazing beer. I was in a bar in Brugge when the bar tender realized that I really enjoyed beer. On the way out, we passed me this bottle - free of charge.
What a delight! Aroma is of rasins. Beer is sweet and smotth - probably a bit of vanilla - but not enough to taste. The beer ends easy with a hint of alcohol finish.
