Bottle.Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark red brown colour. Wonderfull berr to look at. Alas no aroma, but powerfull taste of licorice. Fantastic long finish. Oily palate but too carbonated. bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2008

Pours deep nutty brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee, good roasted malts, some dried fruits and a touch of chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit roasted, some viniousness, lots of prunes and raisins. Medium sweetness, good dark roasted caramel. Fine beer.

Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head.
Dark fruits and some dark hops in aroma.
Dark roasted malts, dried fruits and some bitter hoppiness.
Dark ale, not my favourite type of ale.
Bottled: Burgundy colour. Clear. Light brown head. Very sweet and malty. Has some alcohol notes. Is rather bland and vague in the flavour notes. Ends on a swet and malty note. faroeviking (11343) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 28, 2007

Fruity aroma, not so much in the taste. The ale has a tangy dry finish to it.
