3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl swing top. Except for the sediments in the bottle, it was a clear, reddish-brown beer, with a small, beige head. Some sweetness in the aroma, as well as dried fruits, but it was a rather boring one, considering itís high alcohol and origin. Sweet flavor with dried fruits and alcohol. Maybe a bit one-tracked, but I like it. The alcohol were present in the finish too, but well hidden, overpowered by caramel and roasted malt. Full-bodied, quite effervescent. I prefer itís sister Boerinneken, but this oneís good too. (080112)

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet and quite spicy combined with strong notes of caramel, as well as notes of over ripe fruit, prunes, and some yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel sauce, alcohol, prunes, over ripe fruits, yeast, and brown sugar, leading to a slightly alcoholic, dry, and woody finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 O Belgium, Iíve missed you. Fizzes noisily from the swingtop a beige-collared chestnut. Twiglets, mouldering apple, demerara, liquorice, currants, probably coriander aroma. Who cares what it tastes like?? The mouth is silk, caramel smoothness, Belgian candy...but with enough earthy dark fruit, dirty yeast and gentle roast to back it up. Precisely the kind of beer Iíve been starved of lately. Itís just so...deep and harmonious in comparison. And itís not even a great Belgian beer. The prunes and enigmatic peppery spice are emerging now. A lurking, Orval-like hint of sharpness. Creamy, muddy, carrying its power with elegance. Think I need a lie down. Finally, spiced applepeel earthiness, suggestions of clove and nutmeg. Evil beer.

Pours a huge beige head, that last for a while, but no so long as its sister Boerinneken. Leaves a lot of lace, that makes a pretty drawing on the glass. Subtle smell of chocolate, cherries, toffee and fruits, with some pepper. Flavor is mostly sweet. Taste of chocolate, fruits, peepr and coriander, port wine like. Enjoyable beer.
