Bottle. Dark amber color, beige head. Aroma of caramel. Flavor of caramel. That’s about it. Not much character or complexity. BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2010

Probably the strongest one of the known Cineys. I prefer this one on a quiet evening, strong palet. It is not really called a triple but it has some similar features. I like the after-taste: some fruity thing in it but can not recall what exactly. Like also the colour, bit opaque... but that is not a problem when the taste welcomes you. pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2009
Intens dark beer with beige foam. aroma is slight roasted and sweet with hints of caramel. Taste is rich, sweet caramel like with touches of roastiness and some hop bitters in the end.

1996 bottle at Kulminator. This dark brown beer pourd with a thin beige head and a magnificent caramel aroma. The beer has mellowed very well into a sherry-like taste. Plum , raisin, toffee, milk - complex yet simple. bhensonb (15747) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
The 1996 vintage at Kulminator. Pours dark reddish brown. With a decent beige head. Aromas of reddish fruit and smooth roast malt. Mild, almost no, carbonation. Near full bodied. Finishes not quite dry, and somewhat sherry or calvados. A really smooth and tasty ale. The bottle was crusty from Dirk’s old cellar. Quite a treat. fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2009
25cl 1996 vintage from the Kulminator, pours dark brown with a tall very frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted and smoked malt with some brown sugar and light liqorice. Flavors are very pleasant...time has done good things to this beer. Roasted malt and some fruity yeast flavors fill the mouth with a creamy feel and round out with a light spice of cinnamon and some raisin flavors in the finish with absolutely no sign of alcohol. Just lovely. yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2009
