Bottle from La Grand Epicerie. Great malty beer. Aromas of cherries and burnt toffee. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Dark bronze, clear head that dosnt last. Cream caramel in the aroma. Caramel, sweet, cream, with sweet, mildly hoppy aftertaste.

At 2005 Bedford Beer Festival. This is quite unlike anything I’ve tasted before. Mid amber beer with a firm off-white head. Aroma was comfortingly sweet: strawberry milkshake and cream. The taste sweet, fruity and honeyed, with a creamy mouthfeel. Plenty of alcohol, well disguised. Excellent.

2013-04-04, bottle at Restobière, Brussels, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Beautiful amber color, dark shade, with creamy head. The aroma shows some banana. Full bodied; the malt and caramel flavor have a pleasant touch of roasted nuts; correct bitterness; it gets drier in the end because of the nuts; it’s also a bit dusty.
Very pleasant.

Beautiful amber color; creamy head. Nice malty aroma, macadamia nuts, turning to be almost fruity (oranges). Good body; front sweetness, balanced by a woody tartness; malty; spices and sweet orange peel. Correctly bitter. Original, a real pleasure!
Earlier Rating: 10/14/2003 Total Score: 4.1
Beautiful red-amber color, with a creamy head. Very nice malt aroma; light wood, coriander, vanilla, sweet orange. Round mouthfeel, with good malt and well balanced by the bitterness, in a crescendo to the end; with a quite strong caramel as well, and a subtle sour note. Le Diable Rouge has chosen a good brewer!

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2006
1995 Bottle from Kulminator, Beautiful looking in the glass, clear amber with a delicious looking creamy, lacy, firm off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma, citrus, oak, alcohol, and chestnuts. Mild, complex flavours of zest, dried fruits, prunes, toffee, vanilla and mellow whisky. Breathtakingly good, so well aged its unbelievable.

cobellig (39) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Very very smooth beer with hints of dried or/and mature fruits, brownish with low body yet 9.5%,ugly sticker imho, great taste.

Icedwarf (1910) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
Helder lichtbruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zoet en sterk, hoppig, anijs, drop en caramel. Erg goed, smaak blijft lang hangen, klasse!
