Small white to off white head leaves a decent but thinning lacing above a clear deep amber reddish colored beer.

A sweet caramelish nut aroma that leads into a nutty caramel sweet taste.

A medium bodied beer with a sweet nutty slightly dryish aftertaste.

The Dutch sure do love their sweets.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear brownish/red color with about an inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like nuts, dark fruit, cloves and a bit of licorice. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but with the addition of some brown sugar and molasses. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating with moderate carbonation. Got this one as a single from one of my friends. Not a bad beer by any means, but regardless if this a brown ale or a Belgian dark ale, I like other beers of each style better.
