Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur rousse, mousse abondante et de tenue correcte. Des arômes quelques peu fruités ( fruits rouges), un peu de caramel. Carbonnation assez importante. Trouvée à Roby - menin.

Robe brune, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez sur le malt, les épices, le chocolat, le café. Bouche à l’attaque ronde et épicée, belle bulle lactée, finale torréfiée et équilibrée. Bière agréable et équilibrée.

Бутылка. Аромат слабый. Тела почти нет. В общем подкраш& карамел& водичка.

zarguon (22) - FINLAND - JUL 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark reddish appearance with long lasting medium head. Aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, raisins. Taste is quite similar to aroma. I was expecting it to be sweeter and more complex. Still nice and balanced beer. Mouthfeel is nice, full and a bit oily with soft carbonation.

jaghana (6283) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy amber brown beer with good head and retention. Nose is on caramel and cady sugar, belgian yeast. Aroma is dominant on candy sugar and toasted caramel, a kind of dubble just with less alcohol. Body has fruit notes such as plum, toffee notes, finish is a bit spicy with cinnamon. Nice one.

PeatyPete (1108) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2016
Dark brown color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel and a little spicy. Taste is fruity, malty with a soft sweet undertone.

Icedwarf (1804) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2016
Donker roodbruin bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en kruidig, met iets van bessen en aardbei.

jamaty (2257) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2015
Ambar oscura, marrón. Abundante espuma ocre. Aroma tostado, miel y frutos secos. Ligera de cuerpo y carbonatación en su punto, para un sabor menos dulce de lo que anunciaba en el aroma. Malteada, fruto seco, tostada, de amargor moderado y contraste algo terroso. Mediocre.

lokitje (163) - - AUG 25, 2015
faint aroma some slight malt and raisin looks dark for an amber with good looking head full bodied dark malt pleasant sweetness some liquorice in there to very special indeed
