thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours muddy brown with a big, fizzy, beige head. Aroma is filled with overripe raisins, plums and some caramel. Highish carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet at first, some roasted and caramel malts. There is plenty of dried fruits again. Some slight chocolate peeps through. Also some fair fruity tartness in the finish. This is actually a quite fine brew.

Bottled(330ml). -Nice reddish/dark ruby coloured, small off-white head, dried fruits nose. Sweet malty, dark fruits, notes of figs and caramel. Alcohol is too dominant, some mild spicy hints and quite sour finish. Messy brew.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2009
Very slight gushing to medium, light-greige head over beautiful carmosine-sepia beer; end of bottle cloudy. Very sweet, nutty, caramelly, dark malts nose, sweet dark bread, laurel. Banana, bubble gum, sweet bread, dark candi sugar. Slightly bitterish roasted malts in the finish, which appears rather thin. Warming up, coriander. Medium bodied at best, rather sweet-sticky MF; well-carbonated. Very ordinary, sweet & dark beer. As to the Vieille Villers link, read the ditto Trippel. Thanks to Ignace for the bottle watch!
