Brune foncée aux reflets acajou, une mousse quasi inexistante se pose sur la bière. Des arômes épicés tels que la cannelle et la muscade s’agencent à des odeurs de malt rôti. Plus sucrée qu’épicée en bouche, le piment se pointe discrètement en finale pour ajouter une chaleur agréable. C’est spécial, mais je ne fus pas impressionné outre-mesure.

bnokk (289) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
AROMA - very light Belgian scent. Not too much else. APPEARANCE - very light golden color, totally clear with light head. TASTE - hints of Belgian flavor, but overall a pretty weak offering even for a blonde.

Narnad (1513) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a very dark brown color with a modest, quick fading, light tan head. Aroma has a sweet molasses and malty nose, light toasted notes with a touch of chocolate. Flavor starts off with a very sweet molasses kick followed up by a nice sweet/toasted malt combo and finishes with a light peppery touch. Body is low in carbonation, smooth with a light sugary feeling and light heat from the pepper. Overall not a bad brew. The pepper doesn’t dominate the flavor and add just a touch of heat which works very nicely with this brew.
