Bottle shared by Dogbrick at the Eurostash III tasting on 1/12/12. Hazy copper pour with a huge tan head. Malty and caramelly nose with some Belgian esters. Caramel and malty flavor with a bit of crisp hop. Not overdone on the banana-ish esters. Not bad.

Sample at Eurostash III tasting on 01/12/2012: Bottle from Belgium Beers in Antwerpen. The beer is a dark reddish brown color with a medium light tan head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark cherries, caramel and cloves. Medium and slightly chewy body with a ripe fruity character and flavors of sweet spices, caramel and Belgian yeast. The finish is sugary sweet with a fruity aftertaste. Pretty good brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe poured into a goblet. Dark brown with a very healthy bubbly foam head on it. Aroma is hoppy but not over done. Hopped and slightly sour. Its a good beer, light bitterness and a bit of alcohol bite and caramel. Could be a little more depth but a good pleasant ale.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle (2007), dark brown colour with almost no head. Industrial and alcohol smell. Just like taste with some skunk notes. Maybe I had a bad bottle, certainly the taste was bad.
