330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear very dark brown, nearly opaque. Topped by a huge billowy off-white head that keeps growing thanks to the abundant carbonation. Some of the best head retention I have every seen. Aroma has lots of dark fruit such as figs and cherries layered on top of wood. Hints of pipe tobacco along with wet grass and hay. A little bit of light cocoa underneath. The flavor really has tons going on. Like in the aroma, dark fruit predominantly up front consisting largely of cherries and figs. A decent woody note is present along with a little bit of must although it nicely compliments the other flavors. Grass comes in next along with a moderate, cleansing bitterness. The beer finishes dry on the palate with bitterness lingering long after all other flavors depart. Overall, a truly complex and amazing beer. There is really so much going on here and the flavors change as the beer warms. One of the classics.

From 0.33L bottle. Pours murky, dark brown with a huge, light brown head. Heavy malty aroma, dark bread, dark chocolate, slightly coffee. Slightly yeasty aroma, dough. Also dark fruits like raisin recognizable. Slightly sweet initial taste, full flavor of roasted malts and a bit coffee. Moderate bitterness and very slightly acidic. Long finish, slightly bitter, also slightly sweet aftertaste. Medium to full bodied with a good carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish.

Burberry aroma. Dark coffee color, head quickly goes away. Found it a bit more simple. Taste goes away quite quickly leaving same candy and Burberry aftertaste

Zilb (21) - FONTENAY SOUS BOIS, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Bue une première fois 1 an APRES date de péremption : douce , on ne sent pas l’alcool. Très spéciale, sent le vin et le raisin sec, et à un goût que je ne sais pas décrire. Top! C’est celle-ci que je note. Bue une seconde fois 1 an et demi AVANT date de péremption : brune beaucoup plus dans les standards. Toujours cette odeur de raisins sec mais plus le goût de vin en bouche. Moins douce. Paraît plus sombre que la 1ere fois. Bonne mais mieux vaut la garder 2 ans en cave (voire plus ?)

Sødlig og let maltet. En del kraft fra alkoholen. En klassiker som skal nydes en stille aften.

Mooi donker bier met een goeie schuimkraag. Een volle smaak, subtiele geur en een fijne, lichtdroge nasmaak. De beste dubbel die ik ken.
