4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1L bottle, not sure of vintage (at least 5 years old). Poured medium amber with a ring of looser-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up warm, aged dark fruits, vinous notes, and molasses with accents of dry, earthy spices, rum, and juniper really deep down.. warm and well-balanced. The flavor found dark fruits, licorice, and lesser smoked malts at the core.. rye, dry, toasted earth, and candied fruit skins around.. belly-warming finish.. this showed some age, but it aged really well. Medium-plus bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. soft and almost buttery across the middle.. this was really good.

Bottle - 330ml. Hazy amber/copper body with an average, slowly fading, off-white foamy head. Good malty aroma with caramel and hoppy hints. Alcohol is discreet. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries barley sugar, woody, and fruity notes. Ends with a robust, long, warming bittersweet finish. Good stuff. hansvf (924) - - MAY 28, 2017
Smaakt lekker, vol mondgevoel, maar niet zo uitgesproken als je verwacht bij een gerstewijn. Aardig blackisle (2811) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017

(Bottle, De Drie Dorstige Herten, Utrecht, 24 Feb 2017) Reddish amber colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel and treacle toffee. Malty, fruity taste with notes of apricots, red fruit, caramel and a slightly vinous, spicy finish with a light acidity. Full body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty and warming with some alcohol shining through. Nice one. TEJA (3257) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle shared by Björn thanks. No head and much debris in the bottle. Old and matured malty aroma and taste. Mild bitterness and smooth caramell. DijkBier (560) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2017
Clear ruby brown pour with tan head, that quickly diminishes. The aroma is dark malts, sweet, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar. The taste is also quite sweet, with the same elements (roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel), but also some plums and raisin. It’s a nice beer, but I hoped for more richness regarding the sugary taste, and for more balance in the bitter; now it’s a little too sweet for my taste.

Draught at the brewpub. Sweet, full, sticky, boozy in an elegant way, full malty, with notes of rhubarb and red fruit cake. Warming finish. Very good. Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Schwerer, alkoholisch süßer Antrunk in dem das brotige Malz erst einmal im Hintergrund steht. Moderat würzig, zuckrig. Schädelbier. 9/8/7/7//8
