Pours a dark brown colour without a head. Strong aroma of lovely oak, sweet berries and caramel. Lovely, smooth flavour of smooth caramel, strong stinging oak, sweet berries, caramel and some alcohol. Wine-like mouthfeel. Warming, oaky, fruity finish. Perfectly balanced. Just awesome.

330 ml bottle. Very dark brown. Clear. Medium sized light beige head. Raisiny nose with hints of pepper and oak. Earthy sweet malty flavours. Quite a bit if caramel and dark sugars.

Fantastic dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through. I did find the original version just a little better, but this is still a very nice beer. Gonna try the Grand reserva real soon. wekker84 (2390) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011

Pours a nice mahogany hue with ruby highlights. Small tan head that leaves just a slight amount of lacing as it slowly dies down. A very bubble gummy aroma and dark dried fruit. Caramel and a slight vanilla aroma as well. Sweet taste with a nice overall flavor. Caramel, again in the taste. A little bitter in the back, mixed with a bit of a sweet aftertaste. Nice beer.
