3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of jaghana. Deep murky brown appearance with a small bubbly beige head. Rich malty nose where cork, raisins, caramel, wood and candied fruit show up. Sweet. Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Good malt profile. Pleasant bitterness. Some lacework. Quite a lot of marmite on the swallow, leading to a pleasant dry finish which is reminiscent of fennel and caramel. Nicely brewed and without any major flaws but I didin’t enjoy the marmite component. Thanks a lot jaghana!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle brought home from France by my lovely and patient wife. Pours a deep brown verging on black. Very little tan head, mostly a ring soon after pouring. Aroma is yeasty lightly roasted malt, reminds me of Westmalle. Taste is certainly Belgian like; mild yeast, chewy caramel malt with some roast, slight toffee hit. Mouthfeel is somewhat effervescent. Finish has some dark fruit, caramel malt. Excellent.
