2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 17/3/15 at Ieper, Belgium. BB 22 10 16. Poured a semi-translucent red-brown colour with a one’s to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained poorly but laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma quite sweet of malt and dark fruits. Taste of not too sweet caramel; alcohol well hidden. Light body. Smooth, quite sweet and different to other brown beers but one at a time is enough.

Robe brune. Nez sur le malt, les épices, le caramel, le cacao, la banane. Bouche à l’attaque ample, belle mousse, rétro de café et de caramel, milieu de bouche équilibré et longue finale caramelisée. Une belle bière brune, épicée, mais qui garde de la fraîcheur.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
APPEARANCE is nice, really clear dark brown wit red reflects and a thin foam stays after the large bubbles vanished in 1’. AROMA is caramel, vanilla, nuts bubblegum, butterscotch, woody, leather, dough and liquorish, overall sweet but fresh smell. TASTE is sweet but not too much. Some slight bitterness but nothing dry. Nothing complex but balanced anyway. PALATE is nicely balanced too, not really dense but medium body and medium creamy, average carbonation, that come trough the palate nicely. Palate is long with strong dark fruits and woody cherry coming to the end of it.
Bottle from BK in Teku glass.
