Vignale (4153) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
Flaska från SB. BBD 2017-10. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, en del sediment med lågt men kompakt och krämigt skum. Djup söt doft av sött vitt vin, torkad frukt, mörk karamell och sötlakrits. Mjuk rund med väl integrerad alkohol, smaken är torrare och inte lika utvecklad som doften med en lite träig torr eftersmak. Trevlig.

tandembrauer (1686) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017

ddesprez (92) - Saint-Marcel, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2017
Au nez, elle nous dévoile des arômes de fruits rouges et noirs, de raisin, de pruneau, de prune, d’agrumes, de malt et de caramel. En bouche, on y retrouve des saveurs douces et complexes de fruits comme les pruneaux ou les raisins, de malt, de grillé, de caramel, de levure et d’épices. Son corps est huileux et sa carbonatation légère pour un final doux et fruité. Amertume moyenne.

markoijelena (3259) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - JAN 9, 2017
Draft sample at Bir&Fud Roma, Italy. 17.12.2016. Ciaone Alberto. Pour it dark amber color with small white head. Aroma figs, raisin, orange peel. Taste starts with sweet candy sugar, roasted nuts, spices, figs, plum just a pinch, finish with caramel note, nice Belgian feel all the time, really good hidden alcohol, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Nice!

fischersfriend (35) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Aroma is surprisingly weak. Appearance may be a turn off for some given it is somewhat full of sediments. Doesnt bother me but it may bother some people. Taste is good. Its is orange infused and flavorful. Quiet tasty. Leaves a very smooth refreshing palate. Overall a good selection but it is somewhat pricey . A good brew to try and have occassionally.

On tap at Buskers in Rome-Italy with Mortlach. Chestnut skin pour, ivory foam with retention and many drafts. Nose: raisins, dates, dubbel character but fresher, cleaner and much better. Mouth: 9.5%? Wow! Fresh, clean, complexity of dry fruit with a sour pinch.
