Aroma of slightly roasted malt, caramel, nuts, spicy notes, hint of coffee. Flavour is sweet with a light bitter finish. Too sweet, but a decent beer. Arve_Christian (5144) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
On tap at Cafe Gollem, Amsterdam. Dark/ reddish color, ok foam. Medium/ high aroma intensity; malt, dried fruits, some roasted aromas, leather & coffee. Full body & high complexity. Some sweetness, balances ok as bitterness is good. Very enjoyable

Black small foam head. Watery aroma and taste. Quite disappointing, had higher expectations. (Arnhem 201501)

O,33l fles meegebracht uit purerend. Donker bruin met een dikke cremkleurige schuimkraag. Geur geroosterde mout, alcohol. smaak is zoet droog van de alchol, met een tikkeltje wrange afdronk. Niet echt mooi in balans. RW80 (2574) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2014
33 ml bottle, Appearance: Very dark brown colour ,with a small 1 inger sized, thick beige head on top. Head has a good retention, and leaves medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma: A full dark fruits basket( figs, dates,elderberries.), some roasted malts, some apricots Nice !
Taste: Well the taste has a real suprise you take the tastes of the aroma but you add that Typically too sweet candy sugar Barley Wine style of the Jopen brewerie but this time you keep just in balance. by the roasted bitterness. Yes it; s sweet Fruity, but just enough roast to keep it nice. And with taste like that all the alcohol does is boost things. without comming into front.
Medium thick body, good carbonation with a slightly sticky palate.
Very good brew.. And quite unique. I would personally say it’s a barley wine not a triple ! MonsterMagnet (1446) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle, pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma: figs, dates, candy sugar, dried apricot, roast, elderberries. Taste: liquorice, roast, dark fruit, candy sugar berries, port, chocolate. Medium sweet, light-mediun bitter, medium thin body, creamy mouthfeel. Fruity tart and chocolate finish. Lovely. laurids (12) - - NOV 15, 2014
Heavy on dark roasted malts. But in a good way! Not too complex taste or aroma. Quite some alcohol on the aftertaste. For food pairing I propose a meaty stew or something otherwise rich in taste.
