3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Brown pour, some haze. Nicely formed beige head, creamy edges, good stickiness. Spicy nose, caramel, some chocolate malt, nutty, hints of fruit. Taste has chocoalte and nutty malt notes, cherries and assorted fruits. Dries right out at the end, late yeasty notes. Carbonation is on the high side, body is medium. The alcohol stays well hidden. Overall a drinkable Belgian ale, but nothing I would seek out again.

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.

11.2 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with one inch tan head. Taste is of roasted malt, barley, caramel, chocolate, wood, fruit, sugar, yeast and wheat. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a fruity and woody finish. A pretty good brew.

Good one. Rosso rubino,lievemente velato, con una schiuma beige persistente anche se sgranata. Sentori di caramello,pere e mele al naso, e qualche spezia. In bocca tanto caramello,Miele d’acacia, sapore di mosto d’uva e di pere. Finale piccante con le spezie,corpo medio,tessitura medio esile,carbonatazione media. Buona birra ma,niente di indimenticabile.

Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Dark dark brown beer with thin beige head. Fruity aroma with lots of esters, almost paint like. Yes lots of malt, yes lots of fruit. Some hop on the finish. Some raisin and plum. Definitely malty. But a touch of paint to be honest.
