re-rate 05/18/02: (one year old bottle) The sweetness is now balanced by a nice bitterness. It shows a powerful alcohol presence. - 04/02/02: Dark brown colour, few head, nice lace, impressive aroma: dark fruits and hoppy with notes of licorice and a touch of caramel; the flavour does not live up to its aroma and lacks of balance (this beer is probably too young), very sweet; the finish is dry and long with notes of alcohol - warming and showing a great potentiel (I really would like to try it in 3-5 years) but lacks of balance right now.

Rating (appearance,aroma,flavor,aftertaste,overall impression):
