0.75 l bottle. Murky dark brown color with thick head. Malty, fruity, nutty and parfumy aroma with notes of licorice. Sweetish, malty and spicy flavor with toffee, clove, licorice, wood and caramel. Highly carbonated. emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - AUG 15, 2007
Get it from Beer Temple from Brugge, Dark brown colour, bit sourness on mouth and tongue, Diferent fruity flavour afterwards. Good Beer. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2007
Clear dark brown pour with a thick, frothy, offwhite head. Barely decent aroma and flavor of malt, fruits and yeast. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. There’s nothing really bad about this beer but nothing exciting either. ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
I first had this beer around 1999 from LCBO gift set and again in Brussels-07. I love the unique round-bottom glass, but beer itself is nothing special. Creamy of-white excellent fully lasting head. Dark red-amber colour. moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavour and slight acetic notes. Average finish. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2007
I have to first say that I really really enjoyed this beer and I am very surprised at the low ratings for it. I had 2 of these at my bachelor party at the sharp edge in Pittsburgh and my stepbrother bought me the glass its served in which is realy cool in itself. The beer pours very dark purple brown color with thin offwhite head. Aroma and flavor are both nice mix of light nuttiness and dark cherries. Perfect beer for sitting outside on a deck on a warm summer night.

Easily produces a three-finger thick, amber-brownish-tinged, tan colored head in my 25cl tulip glass, despite a careful pour. The beer is a brilliantly clear, deeply amber hued, red color when held up to the light, but is otherwise a dark, concentrated cherry color. The aroma is quite sweet smelling with notes of blackberry jam, cloves, concentrated fruit-caramel and a touch of toasty, yet definitely caramelized, malty / bready notes. The aroma is fairly enjoyable, though it does seem a bit too sweet to be really nice; the sweetness does accentuate the distinct fruitiness though.RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2007
The beer has a medium thick heft to it, but is not nearly as sweet as the aroma might have suggested. Still at first blush the beer does not seem complex enough to carry the simplistic, fruit nuanced, sweetness that is here. Flavor notes of currants, sweet plums, raisins, a hint of cloves and even some tart notes that are also evocative of plums or even apples. Somehow this beer really seems to fade for me, it is not so much that it doesn’t leave anything lingering on the palate, it is just that it seems forgettable. I am not quite too sure why I feel this way; part of this is the mouth feel, while it does have some heft to it, the beer just seems to disappear on my about half way through each sip. The most prominent flavors are those of the concentrated, sweet fruit notes, which are just too simplistic for me to really get into.
Bottle. Blackish beer with a reddish tinge, and a very, very strong head. The aroma is quite roasted, spiced, and winter fruits. The flavour is roasted with a yeasty body and finished with a lot of baking spices. Overall a reasonable beer. HenrikSoegaard (14182) - Randers, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2007
Bottle. Creamy of-white excellent fully lasting head. Dark red-amber colour. ;oderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Acetic notes that I dont like. Average finish. Oily palate. I didnt like this but nice looking beer. andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2007
750ml bottle yields a thick, muddy, hazelnut pour with a bountiful fluffy cloud-like head. the nose is fresh, perhaps a little tight. malts are creamy, thick, and almost buttery. the aroma also yields honey, almonds, and a touch of french oak. the taste reveals the thicker caramel and blonde coffee flavored malts, as well as toffee and lingering dark fruits like plums and a touch of anise. the finish is lingering, but subtle. alcohol is masked, but noticed. the bitterness is slightly refreshing. doublebock (558) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2007
First time I’ve seen a cork fly that far away from a beer both. Very frothy head. Brown/amber color. Very carbonated, champagne like feel. Minimal aroma. Taste is slighly malty and bready, with multiple layers on the tonge lack of any noticable hopiness
