Barwa rubinowa, klarowne. Piana jasna, drobno pęcherzykowata. Oblepia szkło. W aromacie beczka, karmel, ciemne owoce, miód. W smak bardzo podobnie. Trochę słodkie, dużo ciała, alkohol świetnie ukryty. bierkoning (13893) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2017

Deze Batch was mijn eerste oak aged batch. Aroma is voornamelijk rode wijn, zoet, en wat eikenhout.
Smaak is rode wijn, eikenhout en wat zoets in de achtergrond. Vanille is nauwelijks terug te vinden in de smaak. Inbreak (6824) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2016
