acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Pours a deep brown with a nice tan head. The nose was interesting, though it had a hint of soy, which scared me. It smelled a lot like an Asian marinade with soy, ginger, brown sugar and rice vinegar that I make. In the mouth, its better than that, with hints of the raisins and spices. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A little watery. Lots of alcohol warming. I was disappointed at first, but after a while (the alcohol kicked in?), and I didnt notice the unpleasant flavors and aromas and enjoyed the rich fruit flavors. Definitely would like to try again.

BlackHaddock (6546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This is one of those twenty five. We all agreed it had a magnolia coloured head, the body colour was optional though, I thought it was dark brown! I suggested it tasted and had an aroma similar to that old fizzy drink called dandelion and burdock, only Mat agreed. Anyway it had some dark fruitiness and a herbal/spiced feel to it and i liked the beer.

Samuel214 (711) - SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2016
Flaska frn Beergium, provning med lsllskapet. Vintage 2015. Mrkbrun, murken med beigebrunt skum. Hrligt kryddig och st doft med mycket rosmarin i frgrunden som bidrar med en lite mint-liknande ton jmte den annars stora stman frn russin och honung. Russinen gr sig ven dem vldigt bra i doften med lite rostade, sta toner. Ngot strre kropp och ganska mrkbar alkohol. Inte lika mycket rosmarin i smaken, tyvrr. Maltigt och mycket russin, brnda russin, kandisocker och en ngot bitter avslutning. Knns inte alls som att den r fr tidig fr att dricka, men vore samtidigt kul att se om/hur den ndras om den fr st ngra r.
