3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Got a 75 cl. bottle for free from DHL as a goodbye gift. THX! Cool Service. Brownish, hazy with an off-white head. Ripe and overripe darkfruit in the nose, caramel, sweet with some booze comming through, sweet leaves, brown sugar in the nose. Bitter herbal in the taste, presumably the hops, leaves, burned sugar, caramel, lots of bitter leaves, lots of bitterness and some booze, very bitter leaves & herbs in the back. Medium, light oily body. Interesting & very bitter for a Belgian beer, enjoyed their blond housebeer more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in our room at DHVL. The only non-sour I drank in Belgium! It pours very dark ruby brown, with a massive beige head. The nose is pine, citrus fruit, candied peel, roasted malt and underlying spice. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, pine, tar, assertive bitterness, dark fruit/berry, ash and some spice, with a pretty dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and well balanced. Sort of like a Belgian Black IPA!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at 2 be in Brugge, of all places. I hadnít felt great about leaving De Heeren van Liedekercke without trying this one, and imagine my surprise when I found this exclusive beer at a different bar.
Pours a deep mahogany with a huge tight off white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity with some leafy hops, pears, and mild earthiness.
The flavor is far fruitier and sweeter than the aroma lets on. The beer has a nice hop bitterness that balances this. The bitterness and nuttiness grow more prevalent as the beer warms.

Chunky mahogany colored pour. Big off-white, almost tan, head. Big lacing as it slowly dies down. Perfumy rose aroma mixed with malt. Some corn in there as well. Peppery corn malt flavor. Not good. Finishes as bad as it tastes.
