Bitter caramel aroma with a hint of metal. Somewhat sweeter a flavour than I expected.

Bewitched (19) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - JUL 4, 2012
Bread, toast, leather, alcohol. This beer lacks original Belgium taste and is more like average European beer. It surely feels your mouth with that special "amber" taste, but that’s not what one would expect from a beer from Belgium.

Lightly carbonized, and a little bit empty on the palate, with a light caramel aftertaste and light bitterness, for true better on the aroma than on a taste. Aroma is a little bit grainy and malty, maybe a little bit cheesy.

Panzerfaust (790) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 3, 2012
250 ml bottle bought in Jumbo, Santiago de Chile In the glass the beer looks hazy and amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty with notes of honey, dried apricots, rhubarb, currants and cereal. Pretty nice. Taste is moderately sweet, dry and cereally. It ends much better than the beginning. Some bread, straw and toasty hints. Medium bodied. Simple and straight-forward. The aroma promises more than what it delivers. Alcohol is not present at all. Little carbonation. A good French Biére de Garde but a little expensive here in Chile.

solidfunk (7627) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Starts off with a strong smell of honey which carries through on the first touch of the tongue. Afterwards there is some earthy musk to it. The best of the Ch’tis I’ve had.
