500ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Saveur Biere. Sticky lasting foam and Black/Red colour. Berries at aroma and reminds amber ale. Interesting and fine taste with strong berries. Nice one, but not awesome.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared bottle at the Pre-Brugge beer festival bottle swap organised by Filip of the Belgian Beer Board website: thanks whoever brought this.
My sample was fairly large (cos I’m a greedy git) and I wanted to do the beer justice by having enough to judge it by. Others may have missed out, but I only had about one third of the selection at the swap , well only 22 different beers anyway.
This poured a nice dark brown colour and an off-white head of foam.
The aroma was a rich blend of maltiness mixed with spicy hop notes and a basket of citrus fruit.
It had a wondrous taste: those malts in the smell lead the way in the mouth too, semi-sweet caramel, other malty molasses type tastes and a calming undertone of a woody, hop like feel. A very pleasant beer indeed. Full bodied and worth missing a few other beers for.
Glad I grabbed some and took the time to take notes, it was difficult though as the bottles came along a bit swiftly at times and I missed some excellent brews because of my note taking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark brown beer with a quite weak and beige head. The nose of aromatic hops, rainy pine forest, some exotic wood, caramell malts and some fruit cake. Taste of wood, some pine, hint of tobacco, the bitterness is smooth and slow, but stays nicely in the mouth. Toffeeish malts that is nicely balanced with bitterness, even this is not a hop bomb. Overally, quite dry. Medium+ bodied, smooth carbonation, easy to drink even this strong. Quite nice, but I expected more tropical nuancees, as this more like Europian style of hoppyness. Good balance between the sweetness and bitterness.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark, rather hazy sepia with a thick and fluffy buff head. Strong aroma has malty, hoppy, hay, and subtle caramel and horehound notes. Lip-smacking flavor mixes malt, woody hops, caramel, fruity and earthy tones with a snipped of horehound. Thick, almost syrupy texture leaves a woody finish and a rather persistent tingle. Long live collaborations!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
24/05 A 0.5l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured slightly hazy brown body with medium sized head. Fine, lightly sourish hop aroma, also fruity and coffee malty, dark fruits with sourish component of its own, as well. Flavor was lightly sweet, woody and cappuccino malty, slightly sourish in coffee and vinous way towards the end. Some yeast notes, along with weird hopiness as well. Medium bodied. Although a bit messy, it was very fine but most definitely didn’t impress me.
