Got this at the bottle shop down the road.
From a bottle into a chalice.
APPEARANCE: Pours a 2 finger thicker looking fluffy off-white head with great retention. Higher levels of carbonation evident in the form of tiny bubbles. Dark rosewood red in color. Head fades to a thick foam cap leaving some lacing on the sides. A good foam cap remains until the end and leaves lots of nice lacing down the glass. Very nice looking double.
SMELL: A big nose on this one; aromas jump out on the pour. Sweet caramel malt and lots of dark fruits; mostly plumbs, raisins, and red berries. Some sweet candy sugar and some spicy elements from the yeast. Big and enticing.
TASTE: Caramel malt and some candy sugar sweetness up front, but not too much so. Some dark fruits and spicy yeast through the middle, with some raisins perhaps. Some toasted sweetness on the finish with a spicy and hop bitter aftertaste that's mild yet longer lasting. Quite nice and very well balanced.
PALATE: Medium body and medium soft and creamy carbonation. Creamy smooth going down and finishes slightly dry on the palate. Nice feel.
OVERALL: Very solid double. Well balanced and very drinkable. De Leckere has a few really good brews, and this is certainly a great example of the style that I'll be having again. Recommended.

Bottle of 300 ml, at home. Poured into a chalice. ABV is 6,5%. Ingredients are all organically grown.
Very dark brown colour, which turns to a nice deep ruby colour when hold against the light . Pours a small beige head, one finger in height, creamy, with average retention. Very nice appearance, looks promising.
Roasted caramelized malts on the aroma. Stewed fruits. Mollases.
The taste follows faithfully the smell, caramel at first, then becomes fruity and it finishes with the malts. Overall quite sweet.
Creamy, full body with light carbonation. The alcohol very nicely conceiled. Only a hint of dryness on the palate.
This beer was a very pleasant surprise, I am now looking forward to try the other beers from this brewery that I have for so long in my fridge.
