3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 2015/04/26 - Bottle at De Halve Maan brewery in Brugge. Pours a dark mahogany/amber colour with a soapy, khaki head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is dough, brown sugar, caramel, gingerbread, molasses, tobacco, pepper, dark fruits. Taste follows nose; sweet bread, molasses, dates and mildly toasted notes. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with average, smooth carbonation and a semi sweet, slightly roasted and slightly boozy, warming finish. Very enjoyable. I will be aging this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pra mim foi a melhor cerveja que tomei. Apesar de seus 11% de vol alcoólico a cerveja não aparenta esse percentual. A espuma é muito cremosa e persiste até o fim. Muito aromática e saborosa. E a cor muito bonita. Um vermelho muito escuro quase marrom e bem encorpada. Dei a maior nota

Dark tea brown with floaters, no head. Smells of caramel, tomato. Taste is like a sweet tea, alcohol burn, caramel, tannins, a bitter tea like quality almost like a rye bread a little hop spice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Die Farbe erinnert an Cola. Dunkelbraun rötlich klar mit hellbraunem unregelmäßigem Schaum. Geruch: Süß, getrocknete Pflaumen, karamellisierter Zucker. Geschmack: überraschend wenig süß, dafür überraschend bitter. Aromen von Erwachsenenlakritz und Kaffee sowie Röstmalz.
Das Bier verspricht sehr viel in der Nase, kann das dann im Geschmack nicht ganz halten. Dennoch gutes Bier!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Yard House - CIncinnati. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots of film. Notes of figs, pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toast, sweet bread, cake, earth, and dates. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet and actually kind of toasty mouthfeel. Rich and tasty. ABV is pretty much masked. Good quad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours almost black, which turns dark red when you put it to a light., with a substantial beige head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Very stringent taste with roasted malt, liquirice and a distinct bitterness in the long aftertaste - bordering on grapefruit. High alcohol content asserts itself a little too much. This was a young example BBF June 2017 and I am sure that several years cellaring will improve this beer. Will try it. Oh, and almost an extra decimal for that golden half moon face on a black background on the cap... perhaps the best cap I have ever seen.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Opaque black color that turns into dark red with a light. Light brown head. Aroma has plums, caramel, ripe fruits, licorice and coffee. Taste is first a bit sweet with some sour aspects but turns into quite dry and somewhat bitter long aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, licorice, coffee, port, plums, ripe fruits. Quite intense and interesting one.
