3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bought at De Molen in 2011, rated 28th of november 2014. Mørkt brown with beige head. Some sediment. Aroma of figs, dates, prunes and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dark fruit along with burned caramel and a very decent bitterness. Alcohol dads warmth and it stays on the tongue and in the throat for a long time. Powerful in flavour without going over the top. Still something seems a bit off.

Clear amber to red beer, small aery off-white irregular head, unstable, non adhesive, dissipates immediately. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish, lots of bubble gum, sugary touch, cherries, cherry ice cream, some caramel. Aftertaste: alcohol, bitter hops, sugary, some strawberry jam, boozy, sticky.

"fruity, golden raisin boozy aroma that gets quite pleasant as it warms. smooth, but abv is evident. flavor mostly sweet. no balance, but lots of complexity and quite tasty. a very nice sipper. do yourself a favor and drink it close to room temp."

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, medium brown...a tan cap, for just an instant.
Aroma of fruits....figs, caramel.
Taste is smooth and sweet, fruits, caramel malt, fig, a little cinnamon....
Incredibly well done...almost no hint of alcohol bittering despite the high ABV.
A true pleasure to drink.
