3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours light reddish brown with a small off white head. Clean malty aromas and a bit of fruit. Fruitier in the mouth, dried apricots, melon, crystal malt, cane sugar. Full flavoured, ok balance. Would have been a better beer if it was less sweet, but still enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good yellow-cream head over veiled red-brown beer. Very aromatic, indeed rich nose with chocolate, laurel/bay leaf, certain fruitesters, roasted malts. Overperfumed jumble of flavours; sweet, red fruit, sweet chocolate, yeastfeatures, gingerbread, spices, brown candi sugar, molasses. Liquid Mon Chéri Rather fine carbonation, medium to well-bodied, slick and oily. Too laden with... everything. Why must "Belgian" always mean a conflicting mess? (Oh, yeah, that’s the definition of Belgium)...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit (dates, raisins), muscovado sugar, a touch of chocolate, molasses and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, treacle, dried fruit, chocolate, muscovado sugar, orange peel and a sweet, vinous finish with low bitterness. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit one-dimensional, mainly sweet and vinous, but tasty and quite well balanced. Nice one.

Flaksa från systemet - väldigt brödigdoft. Kolsvart med vitt skum. Smak av chokladpudding. Om jag ska säga något negativt så är den lite för söt, en blir något sliskig i eftersmaken, ingen stor grej.

Hazy dark copper with red tinges, small off-white head. Nose is dried fruit, caramel, sweetness, toasty notes. Flavor is sweet, malty, toasty, fruity and a weird hint of berries. Finishes with alcohol and sweetness. A bit odd. Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Murky brown color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Caramel, malty, bit metallic, dusty hops in aroma. Sweet, fishy, syrup in taste. Bad. Fish scales in aftertaste.

500ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Nice deep brown, tight persistent beige head. Savoury aroma, a bit weird. WTF, that tastes of chinese sugary fish snacks. Oh god no, that’s a horror. The palate is nice and full and smooth, but this is so much not a good beer. Shared the bottle 4-way, but wanted to drainpour the 100ml left after my two sips. Even the parafin of the candle can’t cover the aroma. Yup, DP.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Clear (?), darkest ruby colour with small, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Sweet-ish fruity aroma, notes of cherry, red currant, red and blue berries in general, over-stored raisin. a cautious touch of leather, maybe almond. Taste is moderately sweet malty, caramel notes, hints of raisin, plum, fruit in rum, some vanilla, a sugary touch, rock sugar; super soft, smooth palate, soft, gently carbonation. Rich, but not overly intense, flawless; somehow perfected up to characterlessness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown amber with a two fingers of steady beige head. The aroma is fruity and rich with bready, caramel malts. Lovely aroma of raisins, prunes, belgian sugars, bready malts and nuts. A bit sweet in the middle with light toffee notes and sweet fruits. Cherries, raisins and prunes blend well with the rich malts. The finish is markedly heavy and estery with light spicy hop notes and a bit of alcohol presence. A nice big brew.
