4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a firm off white very nicely lasting head. Aromas of Belgian yeast; plums, wet forest, damp cellar mixed with chocolate. On the palate it is fullbodied with a nice fresh note due to the carbonation and the hoppy bitterness. The aromas and flavours are sweet, but there is no sticky sensation in the mouth afterwards so I guess the amount of residual sugar is really not that high. An impressive beer that made me think quite a lot about Rochefort 10.
Bottle. Hazy brown with off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, figs and dates. Sweet flavour with notes of figs and dates fugitive (2005) - Athens, GREECE - NOV 8, 2015

Thin but durable foam appears when gently pouring from this gold wrapped bottle from Mikkeller. It has a very vinous aroma where little cherry stands out. The taste is rich, thick, inter alia, roasted malt, prune and cherry. In its heavy fruit nuances and vinous complexity appears also a hint of dark chocolate. Estimates protracted fruity aftertaste with warming alcohol to follow. Certainly a beer that should be enjoyed for a real gourmet dinner. The very vinous character and distinct flavor of alcohol in the final, causes it to protrude slightly from its beer style as dubbel. I think the closer acts as a cross a dubbel and a Belgian quadrupel. So if you expect a good full dubbel you should maybe choose something else, for Mikkeller has once again challenged the usual expectations and created something ground-breaking. rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - JUN 26, 2015

Note: ridiculously expensive!
Clear dark amber to red brown beer, aery irregular fizzy beige head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: very oxidized, lots of caramel, sherry notes, bit nutty, port, alcohol. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of milk chocolate, caramel, bit sugary, soft bitterness, bit lemony, sour. Aftertaste: very oxidized, caramel, nutty, lots of chocolate, little bitter, alcohol, sugary. Damn, I bought this bottle like 3 years ago, but apparently the beer was already 2 years old, then... To conclude: NEVER, EVER, EVER do this again, just put (preferably bottle) dates on bottles, all right? Kthnxbye!

Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of berries, grapes, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, alcohol, wood, grapes, and berries, leading to a bitter finish. The body is powerful. Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 22, 2012
Murky dark brown body with an off white head. Strong roasted malty nutty aroma with caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits, spices. Full, highly alcoholic palate with little carbonation.
