Bottle. [thank you, Skortila/Caesar]MarcoDL (4957) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2013
Pours deep, mahogany red with a wonderful, creamy, off-white head. Complex fruity aroma, lots of dried fruits (raisins, plums, apricots), some chocolate, light liqourice, some vanilla and light berry notes. Soft carbonation, perhaps a touch on the thin side. Great flavour, very weird, and very complex. Lots of black currants, blackberries, chocolate, raisins, plums and brown sugars.
Weird beer. I found it hard to pinpoint what it tastes like, but I liked it. Good effort. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2005

Bottled - St Albans BF. Ablack beer with a good large off-white head. The aroma has some licquorice and a little roast. The taste is sweet with some butterscotch and a lactic character. The alcohol comes through also. Decent. Tranquillity (2335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
This is an amazing aroma, and I seldom give 10! The deep fresh liqurice with honey is great. But the disappointment after tasting is big, as the taste is nothing special. The finish is thin. Dark body, small thick beige head. Bottled at arendsnest, Amsterdam. JorisPPattyn (10003) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2004
Nearly black, vague purple shine; fine irregular green-brown head, reasonnably stable. Dark malts, cypress and a bit of alcohol in the nose. Very bitter, chicory-like taste. Retronasal again chicory and (stale) coffee. Not hoppy in character, unfortunately. Better bodied but thin texture. In the aftertaste & warming up, the beer becomes more spicey and the mouthfeel soupy. A bit thin, and a rather unpleasant chicory-like bitterness. Just some alcohol. Seen my former experiences with 3 Horne, my advice is; buy, put it in the cellar and re-visit in 3 or 5 years - bound to be better. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Bottle at St Albans beer Festival, September 2005. Ruby/brown colour. Not very dark. Burnt malty aroma. Palate is fruity, sweet and a bit woody. Thin mouthfeel. Alright but I generally find these Belgian style stouts leave me underwhelmed. They’re just not smooth or rich enough for my taste.
