Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose initially comes through with some caramel notes, but mellows out to some dark fruits. Taste is a bit sweet and definitely has that dark fruity element to it. Heavy and substantive, yet smooth mouthfeel. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2014

Chestnut pour with a tightly packed oatmeal head. Honey-baked biscuit, caramel, raisin, plum, brown sugar, and Belgian yeast. A little thinner and less complex that its more established counterparts. The price is a bit steep for what’s in the bottle. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a dark tea like color with lots of ruby highlights. Sweet nose with notes of spice bread, raisin, date, fig, and caramel. Dried fruit notes on the tongue with a little yeasty bread, caramel, and brown sugar. Medium bodied but it feels lighter thanks to abundant carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finish. Good.

Raisin bread dominates from the first sniff, giving way to hints of honey, plums and molasses. A thick off-white ring rests on a dark translucent brown pour which produces spotty lacing. The pallet is rich and complex. Dark fruit, molasses, honey, bread, earthiness, florals and pepper. Full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a rewarding beer with many flavors managing to come together in a harmonious whole.
