From Sept 2008 This pours a cloudy brown with reddish hues and a very small head of foam that shrinks to just a ring around the glass almost immediately. When I popped the cork, it was the lightest sounding "pop" I've ever heard from a corked bottle. The smell has all sorts of goodies going on. Dark fruit like plum, raisins, and some spices greet my nose buds. The taste has all that fruit in spades with some toffee and molasses and when I swish the beer in my mouth, I get some tartness and a bit of funk and yeast. There's some spice here as well and as the label says it's Rosemary, I'm going with that. ;^) There's also a noticeable alcohol kick here as it's quite warming during and after the swallow. The mouthfeel is a very light medium and the carbonation is so low it's almost nonexistant. That could be improved upon as it reminds of drinking wine not beer! Bottom line: I like the flavours here, kind of reminds me of an Oud Bruin, but the lack of carbonation and the strong presence of alcohol limit the drinkability for me.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki. Piana obfita, średnie oczka, opada. Kolor ciemny mętny pod światło czerwień. Aromat ciemne słody, suszone owoce, belgijskie nuty od drożdży. Smak ciemne słody, czekolada, estry, fenole biją po języku owocowo drożdżowymi posmakami, suszone owoce i klasyczna belgia. Wyczuwalne ziołowe chmielenie, lekko gryzący alkohol do którego po chwili się przyzwyczajamy i wchodzi w likierowe szlachetne nuty slodyczy w sam taz nie za dużo. Piwo złożone wielowymiarowe Bardzo Dobre.
