3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Moeder Original. Very deep black colour with thick white head. Malty character, full sweetish flavour (in retrospect can see the oat content in the texture), just a hint of some yeasty spice, a little boozy, just enough hop to cut and make it drinkable. A nice warming wintry beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a really tasty beer. A little natural subtle sweetness of cherry paired with more potent and bold flavors typical of a dubbel. The nose is not equally as strong and is its weakest link. The palate is multi-layered and very drying. This tops my list of enjoyable beers for flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is dark fruit, yeast, malts and an edge of the juniper berries. The flavor is very nutty malts, dark fruit and a mix of grain sweetness and tartness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle shared by dbsdelight- thanks again, Dan! You’re spoiling (and killing) me with all these new ones in a row. 2006 vintage. Pours a hazy amber-brown color with a small off-white film for a head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts, brown sugar, figs, dates, and holiday bread. The flavor also has brown sugar, dark and dried fruits, sweet and caramel malts, plus berries and a metallic note. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, metallic mouthfeel and low carbonation. The winter spice has mostly fallen out. Probably better a few years newer.
