3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark beer, almost black, very thin off white head; aroma of yeast and sweet dark fruit; well carbonated; thick, slightly oily mouthfeel; spicy, treacly, sweet, cherries and raisins; alcohol always present - tastes super strength; the honey smack can be felt in the finish; the big flavours here are enjoyable, but they sure aren’t subtle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
La belga Lefebvre produce questa birra aromatizzata al miele. E’ la sorella maggiore della equivalente bionda che ho già provato in passato. Si presenta scurissima, marrone, quasi nera e con poca schiuma. Molto dolce al naso e naturalmente anche al palato, sapore dolce di caramello e il miele si avverte ma solo in un secondo momento. Carbonazione elevata, mentre l’alcool si nota senza eccedere.

Taste is bitter with an alcoholic finish. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and some astringency. I expected this beer to be sweet, but it wasn’t.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This ale has ups amd downs for me. Good is the appearance, a nice bold black with frothy head and nice carbonation. The aroma is very unrenarkable- flat and sometimes sweet with honey. Taste is dominated by honey sweetness- not that complex. Palate also has some spiciness and afterburn- not the most accomplished. Oversll it is decent, but nowhere near the best.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dense brown pour from which you can spot some dark ruby highlights if held to the light. The hazel head is roughly structured with a medium retention and good lacing. The nose is very complex with raisins, honey some caramel sweetness and pecans. The taste is sweet from the honey and yeasts, fruity and medium-bitter from the presence of malts and strong hops. As for the mouthfeel, it is effervescent, sharp and light. Great seasonal ale with a smooth drinkability and enjoyable lightness.
