330ml bottle, from trade with MonsterMagnet. Many thanks! Pours extremely dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is rich liquorice and molasses. Taste is bursting with rich dark fruits, figs, raisins, candi sugar, caramel and a hint of nutmeg and spice. This really is a flavoursome little beast, the ageing seems to have matured it beautifully. Many thanks to MrMagnet for sending me this. PotjeBier (3336) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2015

Flavor is moderate sweet, drop, (laurel/bay leaves) and fruit candies. Medium bodied. Long finish without any new flavors. Nice, but I shouldn’t have kept it so long.
