4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The appearance is a brownish brick red with floating yeasty sediments. The aroma is rich of caramel and cherry with hints of pear and dough. The flavor is very bold with cherry, citrus, and dark chocolate tones with a subtle coffee finish. It has a full mouth feel with soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle erupted. A few other reviews mentioned it happening to them as well so be ready if yours does the same. Light brown with minimal head. Bubbily sweet raisin flavor first swig. Aroma vaguely like that of red wine. Malty and roasted nuts, though both are subtle. Same can be said about the red wine character. Extremely subtle beer, what’s all the fuss about? I let it warm a bit and the flavor opens up some more. Finish longer and more enjoyable still not a very tasty one for me. Not bad in any regard, though hugely overrated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33 l bottle from belgiuminabox, bottled in March 2015. Clear, deep red with a huge, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of raisins, plum puree, dark cherries, caramel and port. Sweet, fruity-malty taste of raisins, prunes, candied cherries, caramel and port, followed by a yeasty, slightly bitter and warming finish with notes of dark chocolate. Medium to full body, creamy and smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very tasty and complex, superbly balanced and moreish. Great!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle exploded when opened.
Aroma is close to the one of the La Montagnarde from the same brewery. Alcohol is still present, but maybe in a softly way.
Not my type (I probably said that to all the beers of the same genre), but this could be a nice beer for people enjoy this kind.
