Tap@ de achelse kluis. Ziet er goed uit , bruin van kleur met een mooie kraag. Aroma is zwak mout en zoete snoepjes . Smaak idem maar helaas ook behoorlijk waterig. Niet heel goed.

SVD (1953) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2016
Glass at the brewery, brown, small head. Aroma is roasted coffee, malts. Taste is the same, long aftertaste. nice one.

elosop (403) - SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
Dimmigt mörk mahognybrun med fast mörkbeigt skum. Doftar karamell och sötmalt, lite honung. Smaken överraskande tunn, ganska syrlig, men toffé, romrussin och irish coffe dominerar. Eftersmaken lång, lite bränd karamell och sötma, men även här ganska tunn. Tyvärr var den något övermogen (utgångsdatum 2/2/16).

Dark brown colour with off-white head. Aroma malty and a bit metallic. Taste is bready and caramel.

mjakopa (266) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours a dark brown amber with medium to low head, but quite persistend. Aroma is caramel, sweet, and slightly fruity. Taste is sweet with more caramel, hints of darker fruit and some maltyness. A very balanced and enjoyable brown.

Bosbouw (2899) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Mooie caramelkkeur met een volle crémekleur kraag. Ruikt fruitig, Zoetig, honing, caramel. Smaakt zoetig, stroop, kruiden. Tikkeltje overrijp fruit.
