Bottle. [thank you, Skou]
Pours clear amber with a small, creamy and slightly frothy off-white head. Aroma has liqourice, is vinious, yeast and sweet caramel. Very well balanced. Lightish mouthfeel, but still kind of oily. Flavour is sweet, liqourice, ginger, vinious and a dry, flowery finish. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, house beer at Afspanning ‘t Waagstuk. Pours a clear, dark brown body with ruby highlights, hazy last pour. Decent beige head, reduced to a patchy surface. Smell of dark malts with yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lots of dried fruits in flavour together with brown malts. Bittersweet alcohol to the ending. Oily palate. Well made, and pleasing despite of all the sweetness (Antwerpen, 28.04.2011).

Bottled @ GBBF 2005: Amber coloured. Hazy. LIght brown head. Fruit, berries and malts in the aroma. Flavour of alcohol, liqourice, malt and chocolate. Is a little thin bodied. Ends on a light sour and grapish note.

Ruby with an off-white head. Malt and licorice in an aroma that is a bit perfumed. Very sweet, but reasonably balanced flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge offwhite head; hazy dark red barely translucent body with carbonation. Sweet alcoholic licorice aroma with chocolate notes, slightly unbalanced. Deep sweet bitterish cinnamon and licorice taste, again somewhat off balance. Dry spicy fruity aftertaste. Alcohol heat, and some taste as well. Quite nice, but far from perfect. (0.33l bottle at ’t Waagstuk, Antwerp. Bottle says it’s brewed by Bios Ertvelde, but looks just like the one in the picture.)

De Botella, gracias al Don Morten. Muddy dark brown colour, short beige head. Sweet aroma of dark fruit and caramel with yeast and a dark maltiness. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is in the sweet end with dark fruits, yeast, caramel, a dark maltiness and spice like. Sweet finish, caramel, dark fruity and yeasty.

Black colored beer with a big khaki head. Heavy on the roasted malt with a fair amount of chocolate and coffee. Some strange grassy notes and a nice sweetness of dark fruit. Heavy roasted malt flavor with some mild sweetness of burnt sugar and dark fruit. Dark chocolate bitterness, a bit of licorice, and some mild grass.
