Cant believe it took 4 years for me to get around to rating this. Bottled on numerous occasions. Current rating is a 2010 vintage (2 years old). Beautiful amber color with a frothy white head and plenty of lace. Aroma is caramel, clove, cinnamon, vanilla with the honey showing through. Flavor is still quite bitter with the age. Flavor is malty caramel with toffee and honey. Finishes quite dry with a lasting bitterness. Definitely a sipper that improves with age.
On tap at borefts after. Brown mahagony colour small brown lacing. Nose is strong caramel, burnt sugars. Taste is kandiscukor. Too sweet for me and lack depth. Pallleon (472) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 18, 2017

Sampled from tap at Borefts 2017. Hazy, golden amber with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, honey, raisins and vanilla. Rather sweet, malty, a little fruity taste of caramel, honey, vanilla and some raisins, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite warming and a bit boozy finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice! Benzai (16701) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2017
Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2017, day 2. Hazy murky dark orange color, medium sized beige head. Aroma is malts, sweet ripe fruits, toffee, caramel and brown candy sugar. Flavor is heavy malty, malt sweetness, dark fruits and toffee again. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Heavy but not bad at all.
