0.65 bottle bought at the Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Best before is March 2011 that is almost 2 years ago but should be alright for a beer with an ABV of 11. Served in my Croy Tulip.

Pours a beige two finger head that reduces over time to a rim. A clear ruby body and some carbonation.

very malty, sweet, candy, cherry smell

quite sweet, coffee bitterness, acidity of dark fruits

full body, little carbonation

This an OK take on a Belgian Strong Dark Ale or a Christmas special beer. It is very sweet and malty and makes a good winter beer. The 11 ABV are well hidden behind the sweetness. However, I don't like it too much as it is too sweet in my opinion.
