3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Estimated to be a 2005. Pours a muddy brown red with a one finger brown head that resides quickly to nil. Smell is bright raisins, plum wine, sweet honey, speckles of brown sugar, caramel. Taste is initially a bit muddled due to some more than minor oxidation, but then lends itself to burnt brown sugar, plums, raisins, other dark aged fruit, more toffee. It’s a shame that this particular bottle is past it’s prime, but there still is a shell of a nice beer here. Unfortunately there were a couple of questionable years of care on this bottle that could have added to its demise.
Bottle.Dark reddish with large fluffy beige head.Aroma is sweet and vinious With flavours of red wine and berries,nice tart mouthfeel and sweet Warming finish. maltandhops (59) - Paris, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2017
Dark red with big white head and strong carbonated look. Smells a bit of a cellar with lots of red fruits and apples slowly fermenting.. taste divine with dark fruits, warming spices and a slightly acidic finish. A beauty! tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2017
A very light gusher. Pours a very deep brown body with a super huge, very long-lived, beige head that ends up as a fully lasting layer. Strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark dried fruits, spices, Belgian yeast and brown sugar. Fairly strong flavour (but I had hoped for even more intensity) of dark dried fruits, Belgian yeast and caramel, with lightly roasted malt and spices in the back. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter finish. Full body with a too lively carbonation that makes the mouthfeel somewhat foamy. A very nice beer that probably is superb when not over-carbonated. nathanvc (507) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2017
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]
At Cambrinus, Bruges. Pours cloudy brown with a lasting, foamy, off-white head. The aroma contains sugar, caramel, hops, spices, raisin, dried fruit and yeast. It tastes medium sugary sweet at first, then light hoppy bitter, finishing with a winey, acidic note. Oily texture, medium body, fizzy carbonation, light alcoholic. Very complex, balancing between sweet and sour, a real tasting beer. elbernays (1509) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle from Saveur biere. Pours brown with ruby red hints. Lots of dark fruit, raisin, tannic notes. Flavour is raisin sweet with a sour dry finish. Quite unusual. Lots of carbonation. Not the easiest drinking beer

Decent, but don’t understand the hype. Some slightly, slightly acidic notes, a little dried fruit and some lingering bitterness. dnicolaescu (2567) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 14, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Almost clear, rally dark ruby, gigantic beige head. Rich malty aroma, dark sugars, dried fruit, a little bit of cheesy acidity. The taste is just as rich, malty and fruity, with enough spicy bittering hops to balance, and high massging carbonation for an easy drinking mouthfeel. Background warming alcohol. Very good.
