Got this at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

From a bottle into my mug.

APPEARANCE: A nice clear dark red colour, perhaps burgundy or sangria like. A small tan head totally disappears pretty quickly. Next to no carbonation evident.

SMELL: A medium-weak scent of sweet caramel malt and a bit of raisins. Quite a sweet scent. Nothing too special, but nothing bad.

TASTE: Dominated by the sweet caramel malt taste, with some dark fruits, raisins, and some spicy alcohol at the end. A strong sweet caramel malt and spicy alcohol presence in the long lingering aftertaste.

PALATE: Medium body and lower level carbonation. Has a pretty syrupy mouthfeel. Goes down relatively creamy smooth with a little alcohol bite at the end. Pretty good here.

OVERALL: A decently enjoyable brew, but the taste was a little sweet malt dominated and the ABV definitely packs a bigger punch than you'd think. Drinkable enough, but not overly enjoyable and I don't think I'd want more than one in an evening.

A clear, red brown copper beer with a disappearing head, only leaving a fine layer of white foam on the sides.

Smell is malty with sweet caramel notes. A little cork and nuts.

Taste is very malty with some husky notes. The heavy malt is sweet caramellic and has some strange cork notes. The alcohol is very well present and gives a warm feeling down my throat. The low carbonation level makes the beer even more syrupy.

Chestnut brown with a small off-white head and good lacing.

The aroma is caramel sweet with a few spicy and roasty touches and a good hoppy note, obviously based on a strong dose of malt. Kind of candy-like in its sweetness, but not disturbing or cloying at all, because there is a spicy, even sharp edge to it all. A pleasant dark smell, quite complicated.

The taste covers a lot of territory and really takes its time to develop. A sweet start makes way for a big finish which moves from a pretty strong wave of hops to a bitter-roasted and rather dry (wood-like) aftertaste. Perfect and a beautiful malt profile. A bit too much on the sweet side though.

Body is medium with soft (a bit too weak) carbonation and a clean impression.
