(from draught @ Café De Beyerd, Breda)
Bottle @ home. Etichettata come "winter 2014". Colore ramato scuro, quasi marrone ma con evidenti riflessi rossi. Velata. Schiuma beige fine mediamente persistente. Aroma di media intensità e non troppo complesso, sebbene gradevole. Caramello, liquirizia, porto, spezie (zenzero e coriandolo). Gusto abboccato, quasi amabile. Poco amara, leggermente acida, per via dei malti tostati. Corposa, calda, rotonda e piena. Carbonatazione fine e "pungente". abbastanza equilibrata, indubbiamente armonica. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2014

Draft @ de wildeman. Pours a clear dark brown beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma is very malty, milk chocolate, slight grainy, some herbal influences in there. Flavor is very sweet, some booze and sweet malty touches. The sweetness is overwhelming a bit, but in a nice way. Soft carbonation, decent mouthfeel. Good beer.
