Suberb spicy aroma with notes of nutmeg and wormwood. The appearance is wunderbar. Dark interesting colour with a huge and creamy head and some sediment. The flavour contains complex bitter and sweet notes. A great brew. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2006
[2L bottle says best before 2001 from Magic_Dave6 and Little_hawk for my 21st birthday] Rich aroma of jamaica cake, clove spiked tangerine floating in pedro ximenez sherry, slightly oxidised with age in a good way, notes of hazelnut and almond, still fruity, notes of plum and strawberry, massively complex, chocolate and toasty notes, earthy like a cork gardening mat sitting in wet soil, background notes of chocolate, coffee and iron oxide. Full body with a tickling carbonation, milk chocolate and prunes are prominent on the palate with cookie dough and cherry notes providing depth. Alcohol is well concealed but a slight peppery alcohol note comes through on the long, dry finish. Excellent at this age. MagnumPI (56) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2009
BEER SNOB ON CLOUDS !
Noctilucus (117) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2013
By jingo this pops ! Stained my entired sofa and groin (again). Although it made up for it ! Everything about this beer is dark - Pure bottled malevolence. Similar to Rochefort, perhaps even more complex in a strange way. 1980’s medicine and mulled wine. Perfect for winters night
Very dark brown with burgundy highlights and a thick beige head. Silvan7 (1273) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 6, 2014
A strong nose that combines malt, caramel and/or candy sugar, enough hops to come out balanced while overall it gives a sweet impression.
The taste itself is an evolving blend of roasted malts, a decent bit of bitterness, sweet but far less so than the aroma; a very full taste, also helped by the fact that there isn’t too much carbonation.
Aftertaste: more roasted malts, a slight hint of sweetness; only then the alcohol makes itself felt but never too much.
Excellent, absolutely excellent!
