Clear purplish brown beer, practically no head, just some aery bubbles, little stable. Aroma: heavily oxidized, lots of port and sherry notes, some rotten walnut. MF: no carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, very watery, lots of caramel, card board. Aftertaste: bit spicy, dusty, watery, sweet, sugary, very oxidized, orange peel, port notes. Very thin. It’s spoiled.
Bottle. Brown colour. Some sweet dark fruit. Mouthfeel is stale and sweet, and appears to be slightly oxidised. Light yeastyness. chriso (7540) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle @kookfest, September 2006. Age uncertain but obviously quite old. Darkish brown colour. Intensely sweet. Some figgy fruit. Perhaps there was more to this beer in its youth but, by this stage, there was nothing much but the sweetness left. The juniper and herbs had quite faded away.

Bottle @ Kookfest. Sweet cherrys, malt and minimal hops. Too sweet to appreciate the flavours. harrisoni (21940) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 2006. Very dark brown/red, lasting beige head. Toffee and raisiny, sweet. OK but just way too sweet.

Bottle, from the GBBF Collectable Stand (Unknown Vintage): Deep ruby brown with a short, lasting beige head. Raisins in the nose, with a slight aciditic there too. Big prune flavoute. Very smooth body. Loads of port-wine like flavours and old fruit. Really suprising and pleasant beer. SilkTork (6351) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2006
Kook’s Farewell Bash. Vintage bottle. Toffee and soaked hops. Quite sweet and buttery. Bart (2935) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2006
Had it in the Kulminator, Antwerp. It was about a year overtime. Nice amber colour, rather small head. Malty sweet-herby aroma. Fullb body, rather unusual palate, herby. Finish is smouth. A rather good one this. andybeer (16) - gent, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2005
Amberish beer with nice off white foam.
Soft aromas of caramel, malts, fruits?, spices and herbs.
Taste is round and well balanced.
It ends with some hops.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) A three grain beer with juniper is rather unusual, even for Belgium. Very dark, light brownish head. Lots of sweetness but not cloying due to the low alcohol. And the hops are indeed present as well. Strange but very pleasant. 010693
