3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well, I have to kick myself a few times for making a rookie mistake. I’ve tried to not let the numbers reflect the fact that a bad pour sent the yeast into suspension, causing a chunky mess to be poured, even in the first glass. My problem was due to the relatively long neck and my one-handed pour while holding my snifter-type glass in the other hand. This caused a bit too much forward lean on the bottle and a resultant glug-glug of air trying to get out of the too-full neck. The turbulence made for a messy beer. Nonetheless, this bottle obviously had a huge amount of sediment. Beyond that, my bottle was obviously past its prime, fairly vinous and oxidized. Despite this, there were some great caramel flavors, sweet toffee-like chewiness, a great, light-tan head, and other enjoyable qualities. Too bad I only had one bottle!

Simply amazing beer - notes of treacle toffee (I would love to know how they get this flavour without using sugars)

Topper! Een lekker bier beetje zoete afdronk. Je proeft niet dat het 9% alcohol bevat. Drinkt makkelijk weg.

2004. From bottle. Cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma of clove, sugar, plums and berries / grapes. Creamy mouthfeel, vinous and sweet, frothy texture. Bananas, clove, bread, etc. 8/5/8/4/16, 4.1
2014, bottle from the brewery in Montignies-sur-Roc.
Overpowering anise and fennel seed aroma.
Hot alcohol combined with this anise note reminds of schnapps.
Pasty and yeasty in the mouth, full-bodied, absurdly sweet and just a tad sour.

Absoluut mijn smaak niet, misschien dat dit sommige mensen gaat aanspreken, maar voor mij was het een tegenvaller
