Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Deep dark ruby / mahogany red color, large rough slightly off-white head. Smells really sweet. Tastes really sweet as well, like candy sugar. Decent carbo, medium body. yngwie (17168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle, at De Bierkamer. It pours a hazy, brown body under a big, off-white to beige head. The aroma is sugary, with caramel, spices and hints of alcohol and cellar. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, it blends sweetness and spices quite nice, and there’s also a touch of yeast. Full-bodied and warming. Spiced and warming finish. Although quite sweet, this is a pretty nice beer I could drink more of. 110430 gunnfryd (15175) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2011

330 ml bottle @ De Bierkamer. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Relatively light aroma of sweet malt, caramel and fruit. Flavor is sweet, but feels surprisingly light. Caramel malt, candy, spices, fruity and hint of warming alcohol. Noting really special but quite nice anyway.

Cloudy dark brown beer, crackling (sound) beige head, stable and non adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, alcohol, ripe fruits, some sour berries, roasted malts. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, fruity, some sour red berries, caramel. Aftertaste: more tartness balancing the sweetness, little bitterness with spices. Some alcohol warming the back of the throat.
Bottle:   A darker amber of sorts, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nice aroma of sweet breadiness and mild dark pitted fruit.   Sweet maltiness up front, very much like rustic bread.   Very fruity, both in the dark pitted fruit and even in the lighter colored fruit.   This one is pretty sweet overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   For a Belgian Brown Ale, this one was better than most.   Sweeter, with a bit more punch than usual.   I can dig it!
