Hmmmm, overall a good looking beer, with the usual molasses on nose for style. However, at the really high ABV the taste is quite hollow in mid palate and the mouthfeel a contradiction - high alcohol but also watery. Go figure. Taste wise lots of molasses , dark fruits and sherry.

An ok beer it not an easy drink.

Nice but very different. Think flat, sweet liquor.

Boozy and not enough carbonation for my liking.

Stubby 11.2 oz bottle picked up at Brewer's Haven.. Bottled on 5/29/13... Enjoyed about 21 months later from a large bulb goblet.. 1 finger head rises up and dies back pretty quickly leaving no lacing and no real cap.. the brew is deep dark walnut.

Thick malty nose leans heavily on the dark raisins.. boozy with warmth, burns the eyes a bit.. Spicy yeasty phenols make me think clove first and pepper second.. Esters are raisin with dark cherries.. a bit of oxidation.

Flavor is hot and a little thin, the beer drops off the tongue quickly.. leaving fizzy raisin alcohol.. Okay.. The carbonation scrubs the flavor very fast, but if you try, there is some fruity esters and plenty of spicy phenols..

Very burpy.. Sharp alcohol... Seems a pretty big mess at this point IMO.

Black, almost opaque. Aromas of chocolate, dried fruit and bread on the nose but with a look and smell much more winey. However, in the tasting, vinous character, it enhances the lubricity, does not add acidity and leaves near the potion Kasteel Brune, sugar and less. A small taste of Puerto complements the taste by adding creaminess to the finish syrupy.

From 2010, murky brown, bready with a winey quality to it

A: Dark brown color with light brown foam - low head retention.
S: Raisins, dried plums, and caramel. An intense and "dark" smell, but still quite fruity. Pleasant.
T: The alcohol is highly recognizable with a sweet burnt malt flavor. The licorice in the aftertaste is a little overpowering.
M: Nice carbonation. A medium plus body.
O: Pleasant aromas, but it could be better balanced.
