Red brown ale, cream head. I did not fancy this one. Strange sweetness in the taste, no balance and unclear bitters. No lasting taste.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33l bottle@Crowne Plaza Brussels Airport in Brasserie LeFort glass@approx 6 degrees C (too cold) Pours dark brown with large almost white head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, alcohol and dark fruit with a little spice. Taste is roasted with good balance between the sweet - mostly dark fruit - and the bitter. Aftertaste spizy with especially liqourice coming to the forefront with just a little booziness also. Quite highly carbonated with pleasant, round mouthfeel. None of the off tastes - eg. a metallic twang which so often ruins dark beers, so this is a good brew, which became better as it warmed up.
