3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [from trade with CH-303, thanks!] @ home. Dark brown color with a huge and wite long lasting beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, sweetish and brown sugar. Tastes about the same, especially the brown malts and brown sugar are dominant. A little too sweet for me to really like it. Decent body, soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours mahogany with a fading cream head. Sweet red fruit aroma. The taste is pretty sweet and fruity too with some liquorice in the finish. Moderate spice also. Prehaps a little thin and over carbonated, but pretty good otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a nice malt note. Black brown with a light brown quick dissipating head, light lacing. Complex very Belgian taste with leather, salted-licorice and nice bitter coffee. Tons of things going on and a long finish. I like it a lot.
