Poured reddish amber with a dense off white head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, light malt. Medium bosy, flavour much as the aroma, dry, bitter sweet finish. age_jellema (97) - Hengelo, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
It tastes like a mainstream bok, medium thickness, bit roasty, medium bitter, very dry, light for a 7%. Not my favorite bok style, but more for a summer day beer with a bit of pit. vipinvelp (4555) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013

Bottle at home, 300 ml. Into a snifter. ABV 7%
Pours a nice red brown colour on the body, with almost two fingers of light beige head. Low retention, it does leave though a thin film on the surface and light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is of stewed fruits, glue, nail paint.
Taste is fruity, sweet, at least at first.On the finish it gets some roasted malts, light chocolate, caramel and turns to a nice bitterness with good long duration.
Very dry palate, average carbonation, medium thin body.
Pretty good actually, I was expecting much less but it proved me wrong, always happy when that happens.
