Аромат темных фруктов и карамели. Пена очень пышная. кремовая и с большими пузырями. Цвет темно янтарный. Вкус в основе карамельный, также чувствуется яблочный пирог и темные фрукты. Несмотря на десять градусов, пиво весьма водянистое и вкус не такой глубокий как у лучших в этом стиле. Кстати алкоголь вообще не ощущается, даже когда пиво теплое.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Tap @ Brouwersplaats. Roodbruin, plakkerige kraag. Ruikt en smaakt kruidig, metalig, lichtzurig fruitig. Niet geweldig.

zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018
Bottle from "The Rare Drop", Low Fell, Gateshead. Hazy amber-brown coloured with a massive white foam head. It has a red fruit and dried fruit flavour with liquorice and sarsaparilla notes followed by plum and currants on the smooth, warming candy finish. Excellent!

p0urmeac0ld0ne (413) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - JAN 4, 2018
400th Rating! :D - One of the best beers of the year, something I have been looking forward to drinking since I brought some back from Belgium. Such a complex and delightful beer to drink; epic dark fruit flavours unfold with a sherry / fortified wine feel and alcoholic bite. Insane carbonation which made pouring a bit of a laugh but it meant that the head (and also the mouthfeel) remained consistent over the long sipping period (not long enough!). Brilliant stuff.

3.9
vinivini (3147) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle. Almost clear amber pour. Tall off-white head. Very good retention. Aroma: sweet candy, caramel, banana, spices, yeast. Medium plus body. Light sweet taste. Caramel, candy, banana, dried fruit, spices. Decently hopped. Some harsher alco on ending along with light hop bitterness. Still good.
