2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy brown colour with steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt and nuts. Taste of dusty Belgian yeast, dark malt, ripe hops, straw, leaves, woods and vanilla. Easy to drink but just not that quaffable as expected. Solid one.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Gefreut hatte ich mich doch etwas, da wir hier ein Sammelsurium flämischer Biere im Paket erstanden hatten. Dieses hier war leider dennoch enttäuschend. Von Beginn an metallisch mit ein klein wenig Malz und Karamell. Nur weil es heftig knallt, so muss es noch lang kein Gourmet-Erlebnis sein.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem. Ruby, copper, brown, almost no beige head. Nose is actually pretty nice, very sweet, pure brown sugar, BE yeast & dark fruits plus liquorish,… Taste is however disappointing brown sugar water with watery dark fruits, iron, copper, weak malts, oddly off – not infected or anything just weak, too commercial, you know,... Watery. Maybe it was an old bottle or something because rating it far more optimistic than I was.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aged, not sure how long, somewhere between 1.5-2 yrs. Dark auburn brownish with a big foamy light beige head. Aroma has some sweet and sticky caramel and toffee tones with some earthy raisin and ample nuttiness. Flavor hits with a big and pleasant toffee and nutty syrupiness, followed by some earthy toast and raisin tones with a touch of dusty sweet yeasty ester. Sweet and toasty and nutty and earthy. Splendid.
