UPDATED: MAR 19, 2017 Bottle. Color: Dark ruby brown, small fast disappearing ligjt brown head. Taste: Very sweet, lots of sugar, some hints of red fruit and caramel. Nothing special for a dark beer. Sticky sweet mouthfeel and finish. And now off to my dentist to check my teeth for cavities... Maakun (5402) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle at home. Very dark brown with light brown head. Coffee, dates, raisins, dried plums, roasted malts, caramel, light spices, ash, some vegetables and cardboard in the finish. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Surprisingly decent, maybe it’s because this is two months past the best before date, but apart from the finish I think it’s quite drinkable. sjogro (3953) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Deze fles moest er ook maar eens aan geloven. Weinig spannends, zwaar en donker. Backlog from 2015/01/16. Maarten1993 (1230) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2015
Drank a 2014 bottle with Rik at my home 20-10-2015. Beer is watery. Not special. Only slight coffee aftertaste. MrHangover (4442) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown beer with a very small off white head on top. Aroma is dark fruits, touches of coffee, licorice and quite malty. Flavor is very sweet, malty and sugary with molasses in the back. Slight bittersweet finish, low carbonation. Decent at best, but really not much cool going on here.

30cl Bottle from Winterbierfestival. Bottle from last year, ABV is 8%. Dark brown with a red hue, off-white head. Aroma of grain, bready malts, dark fruits, caramel, lager-like notes, chocolate, smells like a dunkler bock. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, a little oxidized, dark fruits, chocolate, bread, bitter malty finish. Medium-bodied at best. Very German feel to it. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2014
At Gouda 2014. Poured medium reddish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of dark fruit and sweet caramel malt. Medium to full body, nicely balanced, flavour of yeasty berry fruit over caramel malt. mike_77 (6581) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2014
Very dark brown colour. Has a mix of sweet dried fruit and a roasted, dry bitterness. Some liquourice comes through in the finish. kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle sampled at Gouda Winterbier Festival. Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of nettles, grassy hops and caramel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Some citrus coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with light carbonation. dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2013
dark/red appearance. Flavor gets a little better as it warms up. It is a nice warming drink. Caramel is nice, also some iron, maybe even liver. On the watery side, which is disappointing. Bottle from a Jumbo supermarket at the Wilhelminakade in Groningen.
