Bottled (BBE in 2006...). Coppery colour with mediumsized off-white head. Nice lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight yeast and quite sweet. Flavour is sweet fruits, mild spices, caramel malts and also quite much yeast. Quite sweet, but has aged quite well. Mild notes of alcohol as it warms up. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2007
The bottle (from Delirium Café) seems quite old. Hazy amber color; creamy head. Aroma of malt, oxidized. Round mouthfeel; it really seems that the beer is not recent, but the ageing had some positive effect; malty flavor, with a good bitterness level, and traces of ripe apple. Very pleasant.

Hazy copper orange with tanned decent head. Lively carbonation. Fresh aroma of fruits and hops and maybe a hint of alcohol. Medium-bodied, portwineous palate. Flavour is herbal hoppy leaving hoppy bitter aftertaste. Hides ABV well.

2010-08-10. Hazy amber body with a small creamy beige head and light lace. 3+ Sweet flavour, malty core, sugars, touches of raisins and fruit. 7+ Sweet aroma, mild malt, sugary caramel notes, raisins, fruity touches. Signs of possible oxidation, but still enjoyable. Undated bottle has the look of being pretty old. Bottle at Delerium Cafe, Brussels

Clear copper-amber beer; very good, off-white head, leaving lace. Very sweet biscuits, some caramel; oxydized as hell - no BBD mentioned. Sweet, oxydized, alcohol, some fusels, and sweet bread. Ugh - the emphasis on sweet. Grist slickness, ending in some burning MF. Another one that is aged where it shouldn’t have. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2006
Any first impressions?mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010
-A troubled orange colour is embellished by a sturdy sheet of head.
-Figs, peaches, and mangos discuss within the yeast-laden caramel.
-Doughy yeast and caramel maltiness provide a simple flavor profile.
-The soft carbonation and lean maltiness don’t exactly quench or nourish, but they are valiant.
What if you dig deeper?
-There is no alcohol apparency, which is appreciated at this gravity.
-Unripe tomatoes worry with their acidic brush.
-The yeast is too prevalent for total palate comfort.
-This remains a decent amber ale, but nothing special overall.
Bottle; best before 13/10/2006.
[3328-20100810] 250mL bottle. Old wort aroma with mild celery barrels. Hazy, dark orange amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and some lacing. More wort and rusty steel in the flavour with a mild white cheese note. Medium body is a little oxidized. "Longest name ever" -- could be old, reminds me of a boozy faro.

Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of sherry and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, velvety texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Strong but kind of dull aroma, and not especially clean in the aftertaste. Looks great though.
