4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
35,5 cl bottle from etregourmet.be. This 2013 edition pours dark brown with a large creamy, beige head that stays up. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and orange. Flavour is malty with dark, bitter chocolate and spices. Creamy mouthfeel with a very long spiced aftertaste that after 5 min changes to dark bitter chocolate. Some alcohol warmth as well. Well brewed and a nice different beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty darker pour than expected with a light coffee foamy head. The aroma is toasted malt and molasses. The flavor is pretty nice with the maltiness and it has a touch of hop at tthe end. The molasses adds a sweetness and I also get a touch of a red wine type flavor. Not too shabby but nothing to write home about

Pours a rich dark brown with a full, light brown head. Complex; with fruit, nut, and coffee notes. Just the right amount of bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: deep brown to black. Clear with very thick head. Huge lift of spice and florals. Some roasted flavors but they are dominated by the herbaceous additives. Dry, not sour and medium bitterness. Phenolic not bitter. Loads of flavor itís just that not all of itís nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured very dark crimson with a nice frothy head that never completely went away. Aroma is a little light, but good. Milk chocolate, cinnamon, peat, caramel and slight spiciness. Very nice flavor, very balanced among many different constituents. Smoke, peat, bakerís chocolate, toffee, malt, cinnamon, spices and even a subtle English hop presence. Very good.
