Brown almost black with a small, almost non tan head. Aroma of wood, cider, vanilla, cold coffe, chocolate. Mouthfeel creamy at start, but more watery thereafter. Taste of bitter licorine ( Oliver Twist), prunes, coffe, buned malt, cinamon. An exciting beer. Idiosynkrasie (7837) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2015
660ml bottle. Quasi black colour with late awakening, small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Nuttily, chocolately, roasty dark malty and fruity aroma, a cautious touch of hootch (probably due to the Cider Brandy). Taste is slightly sweet chocolately malty, hints of leather, ever increasing nutty and nougat notes, some treacle, mildly tart fruit acid counterweight. Rich and complex, diversified.

Una birra intrigante fin dal primo sorso, impenetrabile, intensa, ricca di note calde, leggermente fruttate, di bacche, che si protende fino al retrogusto lungo e morbido. Davvero divina, memorabile! BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
