Bottle at home. Aroma of malts, caramel, red fruits, definite spicy notes, cinnamon, some brown sugar, hint of chocolate. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Pleasantly surprising balanced sweetness for a malty/spicy Belgian Ale. Enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The dark one in the sugar-free series and like its blonde predecessor, very low in calories. Yellowish beige head, darkish amber colour with chestnut hue, not really dark contrary to what the label says. Aroma of caramel, nuts, strawberry, yoghurt, pepper; taste very dry, bit sourish, bit of iron, woody malts, dried fruits, finishing in a dry-hopped, aromatic bitterishness. Too dry and thin for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pure reddish-amber color woth huge rocky beige head.
In the nose can be felt a very gentle combination of bready malts, citrus, caramel/chocolate, lovely spices and even beatiful evergreen pine.
Pleasantly balanced taste of malts, spices and some sweet nuttiness. Smooth bitter aftertaste reminds of rye bread. Average carbonation and medium body. Surprisingly FRESH CRISPY and DRINKABLE. Fair ale.
