2007 bottle, 750 ml with caged cork. Ready with a big Duvel glass in case of a gusher… but nope, not a problem this time. Pours reddish brown, fizzy like a soda, thin head. Smell is, um, like a rubber inner tube in the glass! Definitely, this got corked like a red wine. But a light herbal quality in the bottle. Wha hoppen? Okay, I can get past the nose and sip some of the beer, which is not as herbal as, well, other traditional ales, in fact, milder than some other old beers I’ve kept too long. So beyond the spoiled nose I find a slightly fruity ale, not too spicy and herbal, with a slight bit of tart marred by too much horseblanket. It’s a sign. I need to clear out my cellar!
Bottle from Beerwulf online. Brown beer with large tight head. Aroma of toffee, spice and malts. Taste is rich malts, dark toffee, spice and brown bread. Very good. artemb (1293) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JAN 4, 2018

Spicy aroma, mint, spruce, pines, bronhi candy, herbal, lota of caramel, hints of alcohol. Like a really spicy doppelbock. Cloudy brown color with small off-white to tan head. Heavy sweet, malty, caramel, candy, herbs and pine. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Extremely tasty! //bottle in Craft Room BitterGuide11 (2) - - DEC 15, 2017 does not count

Bottle shared with Višnja666. Thanks! Dark amber, minimal off-white head. Aromatic, marzipan, caramel, cola, dried fruits, berries and wood. Sweet with dark cherry flavour. Sticky, light to medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol is hidden, sweet finish. Very interesting, nicely made, although one might not be satisfied with some outcomes.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 This murky, amber color beer is a perfect match with a dish like ‘stoofvlees’. It has the warmth of a double, but the spicyness of a quadrupple. Really nice beer! djabel81 (11) - PoznaÅ„, POLAND - NOV 20, 2017
Piwo z kategorii rozgrzewających, choć alkohol tu na szczęście nie wychodzi na wierzch. W odczuciu był to taki Belgian Strong Ale z ziołową goryczką, na szczęście nie perfumowaną. Po ogrzaniu wychodzą biszkopty i herbatniki. Smaczne, choć raczej proste piwo. Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2017
From bottle. Pours opaque brown with a stable beige head. Intense compositon of flavors which is dominated by an alcoholic taste of booze, thus not exactly what I desire a top-class beer to be.
