Donkerbruin bier, bijna zwart. Qua smaak weinig bijzonder, maar wel met een erg fijn palet.

Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is brown malt, caramel, candy sugar, raisins. Flavour is sugary sweet with and light bitter. Body is just about medium, slightly thinnish for the style, with lively carbonation. Bit too much like sugary caramel water to be enjoyable.

Taste starts of with caramel malts but then mostly candi sugar. Mouthfeel a little oily but over-carbonated for my taste. Looks fine and has a nice aroma. Not a bad brew but its rather boring and by no means anything special.

HopsTamer18 (2) - London, Wiltshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016 does not count
The smell is odd, a bit like asparagus. But its a delicious dark ale with a sweetness, nuttiness but also a nice bitterness. Well worth trying though maybe not the first of the night.

Beerhunter111 (18468) - PCastle, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours hazy dark orange brown colour with a huge good lasting tan head. Aroma of dark malt, dark fruits, wood. Taste of dark malt, dark riped fruits, berries, plums, bread, some chocolate, interesting!

wombat23 (1076) - Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Draft at Gollems Beers and Burgers, Antwerp. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, spice and yeast. Taste follows nose. Faint metallic notes. Decent.

Bottle bought at some supermarket. Caramel, malts, light alcohol, fair enough,

carlorox (19) - siena, ITALY - SEP 12, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2016 Persino troppo abbondante la schiuma,meno sontuoso il corpo della birra in oggetto che non spicca troppo, a mio parere, neppure nella complessit. Una discreta birra che ho trovato migliore per scendendo un po di temperatura rispetto allo standard e lasciandola riposare adeguatamente.

To much CO2 in the one I taste. Palate was good. The colour is spot one. I have a feeling the abv is higher then 6.5%.
