COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

Dark redbrown. Huge beige head. Sweet spicy aroma of caramelmalts, cinnamon, cardamum and something that reminds me of dishwasherliquid. Taste is really sweet, almost too sweet for me.

Aroma of malts, some hops. Dark brown, nice white head. Sweet, some hops and some hints of yeast. Thin and medium carbonation. Disapointing and quite boring.

Brune foncée aux parfums frais de sucre candi. La bouche se révèle beaucoup plus douce avec un équilibre alcool / sucre résiduel fort intéressant. J’aime de plus en plus les produits de Baladin que je découvre au Mondial de la Bière.

750 ML Corked and Waxed?? A bit much I say. Branded as Leon here. Murky, hazy, dark orange brown color. Off white head, falls to a thin collar quickly. Some strips of soapy lacing. Pepper at first, followed by dried plumbs, strawberry,ripe banana, and caramel nose. Chocolate covered cherries, strawberries and plumbs. Juicy taste with enough chocolate and caramel to keep this occupied. Medium bodied, light carbonation, slightly sweet and slick with a juicy fruit finish (plumbs and strawberries). Much better in the front of mouth than in the back. Still decent though. Nice take on the style.

Foffern (1190) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark nut brown colour with a small light beige head. Aroma of leather, chocolate, dried fruit, spices, alcohol and nuts. The flavour is much alike and is pretty malty but not that complex. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Has a decent balance but a bit one dimensional. Would maybe improve by aging.

750 ml bottle as Leon. Unclear brown/amber body with a decent off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dry fruit and Belgium yeast. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, dry fruit, candy sugar, yeast and some warming alcohol. Fine body with a long and sweet aftertaste with hints of alcohol. Nice Belgium style strong ale, a bit more rustic than usually from Baladin.
