Almond/pecan pour with a small eggshell pour. Caramel, toffee, spicy grapefruit, pepper, biscuit, honey and some raisin. The descriptive words do this justice. Doesn’t meld extremely well...individual flavors are better than the sum of its parts. Meh. Martinus (4703) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2013
Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, light sour touch, malts, light spicy. Quite sweet flavour, malts, light bitter. Finish malts, bitter hops, light alchoholic.

Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Hazy reddish color, full sized a bit creamy beige head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, lightly caramel, a bit "speculaas" (Dutch). Taste malts, lightly sweet-bitter, a hint of raisins and leaves. Medium body and carbonation. Koelschtrinker (21514) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 18, 2012
Getreidig dunkler Malzbeginn. Spät schokoladig. Bitterer werdend, etwas zu starke Karbonisierung. Herber Mittelteil und Abgang. Unspektakulär. 9/9/10/9/10/9

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with lemon and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with additional caramel. The palate is bitterness. Overall an average beer.

Bottle courtesy of Vin. Pours a deep, brownish amber body with off white head and lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, dark fruit, light hop and grain. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of toasted malts, bread, dark fruit (raisins), caramel, light bitter hop. Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours cloudy brown with a light, off-white cream head. Tangy berry aroma with hints of funk. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of toasty bread, ripe fruits. Medium in body with creamy carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish, lightly dry with some more bread, berries and very faint, general tang. OK, but a little incoherent.

Bottle brought back from the Borefts. Shared with James, Bill, Frank, Allen, and Liam. Pours murky brown amber with off white head, huge head and lacing. Aromas of grape smuckers, yeast, toast, raisins, and hops. Taste is the same with some other flavors of roasted grains, caramel, and dark fruits. Finished a little dry. Another fine offering from the dutch brewery. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy dark amber pour, huge foamy off-white head. Aroma is slightly roasty, spicy, some sugars, toffee and some yeast. Flavor is spicy, slightly sweet, peppery, yeasty and caramel. Decent balance, only a bit boring flavor. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle @ tasting. Love the initiative. Aroma is bready malt, some spice and some fruits. Flavour is pretty bitter with an almost mocca roasty note at first, followed by a fruity spicy note. Nice one, Hamoen.
