Pouring beautifully with reddish colour and a firm of white head. Taste is lingering and sweet with some alcoholic sweetness but almost like a barley wine. Very round and oily longlasting palate and finish. Some spices and herbs to go along. Rubin77 (2043) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 17, 2015

A: quite vinous at the beginning, malty, dark fruity, some chocolate, toffee, hint of hops/yeast.
T: very lively carbonation, malty, fruity sweet, sweet plums, alcohol warming, chocolate, hint of coffee, molasses, some spicy, peppery notes, hint of decent bitterness, very good but not as complex as I expected, worth to try.

Dark, almost toffee pour. Big off white head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma of slight roasted grain. Though very subdued. Some dark fruit. Taste is a sweet dry version of the same. tillmac62 (728) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2015
BBE F03/11 Pours dark brown with a hint of garnet. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Rich nose of dark fruit (figs, plum), chocolate and cherries.
Medium body with a creamy texture. Perfect carbonation with just enough effervescence in the middle to cut the creamy texture and a finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding. Intensity is reasonable, rather complex and perfectly balanced. The 12% alcohol is completely covered, which few beers accomplish. It begins with a slightly bitter dark chocolate note that gains sweetness. Chocolate yields to dark fruit as the middle approaches with fig and plum slowly taking on a cherry note. As the fruit fades, a very mild bitterness emerges along with a light prune coupled with a hint of oak. As it warms, a slightly tannic aspect is evident. The finish is a slow fade that begins as chocolate and ends as prune. DwarfeD (3454) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2015
