3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Basically a dubbel in body. Murky red-brown in color. Hints of decadent plum, candi sugar. Overall, in my opinion, a very pleasant belgian style dark.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Kick. A dark brown beer with a small beige head. Caramel, prunes, a touch of blackberries and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Some spiced, cellar hints too. Spiced hints. Some cigar. It’s full bodied, soft and lightly warming, with a nice carbonation level. Nutty, caramel flavor with roasted notes, blackberries and a hint of cellar. Low on bitterness. Lasting caramel and roasted malts finish. Not bad at all, but far from my favorite Ducato beer. 151022

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a medium creamy light beige head. Nose is blue plums, raisins, figs, dark malts and hints of caramel, candi sugar and rum. Taste is figs, dates, rum, dark malts, raisins and hints of caramel and candi sugar. Medium to full body, high to fizzy carbonation. Decent and pretty classical BSA, without much more on offer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle, teku glass. Pours an average white to beige and creamy head; slight ruby to really murky brown colour. Smells huge: ripe fruits, lots of pears, raisins, yeast, brown sugar. Tastes very fruity, pears, plums, caramel, sweet cocoa, spices; medium plus sweetness followed by a balancing bitterness that just cleans off the mouth, leaving a dried fruit and roasted malt finish. Medium bodied, sticky and silky. Strong character, balanced and very complex, enjoyed it

Really murky brown but a smooth, creamy head that really lasts. Raisins, plums, and caramel flavors make up a full body and a rich finish. This is a respectable brew!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Appearance: finger tan head, brown and copper, opaque, no lacing. Aroma: raisin, prune, light licorice, slight vanilla, chocolate. Palate: medium full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, dry finish. Taste: sweet molasses and chocolate with notes of prune and raisin coming through, finishing with vanilla and mild chocolate and light booze. Overall, pretty different, pretty complex, but not the best. Maybe a little too much going on and not enough balance for the sweetness. Still very nice.
