2.99/5 rDev +4.9%
Bottle at Het Konings Huis, Delft, Netherlands
A: The beer is clear but dark reddish brown in color and has a light amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin beige head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sugar cane and molasses are present in the smell.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather sweet and has notes of syrup-like sugar cane along with hints of molasses.
M: It feels a little more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The sweetness of this beer isn't extremely palatable but it is the light-bodied nature of this beer that still makes it easy to drink.

3.58/5 rDev +25.6%
Bottle of 300 ml at home. ABV is 3.5%. It pours a very dark brown, non transparent beer with a thin, brownish head that dissapears slowly but steadily.
Aroma is sweet, slighty fruity, maybe raisins (?)
Taste is also very sweet, I get some caramel flavour and it leaves behind, after each seep a very thin sour aftertaste that combines well with the overall sweetness.
On the body is quite thin, carbonation is almost non existent but I believe it has a high drinkability.

2.6/5 rDev -8.8%
Look: the beer pours dark red-brown color with a nice brown head.
Smell: Very sweet malts, caramel and dark sugar
Taste: follows the nose. Very sweet malts, caramel, dark sugar, and some hints of very sweet coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth and sticky.
Overall: This will never be my favorite style, too sweet for my liking. For the style however, decent brew

1.93/5 rDev -32.3%
My 3.5%ABV version came in a brown 33cl bottle with a best before date of Jun 2011, so whoever retired it on BA did so a bit early!
Poured into a Westmalle chalice: initially it looked good, a clear bright, yet dark ruby red body sat below a tanned head, the head sadly fell away to just a collar very quickly.
No smell at first, then as it warmed a sugary, sickly candy aroma arrived.
Very sweet tasting and with next to no body depth, a watery, malty syrup, with a nasty metalic aftertaste.
Oh dear me, this is one poor beer!

3.45/5 rDev +21.1%
This is a smooth and malty interpretation, with a finish reminischent of saccharine sweetened coffee. It is from a brewery in Wijlre, east of Maastricht. It is an antique style beer and seems very appropriate at bars in the Netherlands. It is a spiced beer and is fermented with wild yeast, and was made in the days when the brewery was a brewpub on the Lord of the Manor's estate (got that from a book). It is a very good beer, owned by the Brand family. Not my favorite, but ok. The local monopoly on beer is on the text on the neck label. Cool
