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.

Aroma of cherries and blossoms. Dark brown. Flavour is smokey and brownish. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Dark reddish brown with a tan head. Wonderful fruity aroma with notes of nuts, marcipan and chocolate. Nutty, fruity flavours, chocolate and marcipan lurking by as well as potent alcohol. A treat for the senses, especially for a sweet tooth. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - SEP 10, 2009
LCRBM 2009. Thanks to yespr for bringing this! The bottle looks really, really good! Brown in the glass, small creamy head. Malty-dusty aroma. Starts mild-malty, becomes more and more intense with fruity notes of plum and raisins, also some caramell. Finish modest oily-malty. Great beer! Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2010
Great aroma. Dark bread, dark fruit, laqurice, pleasent soft yeast. And a tough of alcohol. It’s dark brown and hazy. Has an off-white head, lasting. Flavor starts nice soft sweet, caramel, then bitterness, perhaps a bit too bitter finish. Perhaps I should buy a couple of bottles more to store. Warming alcohol, full body, dry, creamy texture.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 black bread,red/brown, clear, white foam, lightly bitter, light sweetness, full body, creamy, lively, bitter. good beer. Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2009
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. lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2009 Rating nr. 250 goes out to this co-work between Mikkeller and the designers Femmes Regionales. This belgian influenced bastard is wrapped in gold with a feminin scarf and comes with a label that can be one of three different colours. It might be the appearence is a bit feminin, but the containes is pretty maskulin with a strong ABV. Maybe we here have a piece of unisexiness.
The pour is medium dark brown with a tanned sparkling head. The nose is light with hints of malts, some smoke, yeasts and dry fruits like apricots. The taste is huge with a great mouthfeel. The strong alcohol is constantly present and differs away in the end hand in hand with the caramel, chocolate-toffee taste together with a nice bitterness. The palate is tickling and stays with you minuttes after leaving the glass. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011
