3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber and slightly hazy. Very nice off white head of perfect stability.
The nose is quite sweet, full of milk chocolate, caramel and brown sugars. Maybe some hints of roasetd hazelnut - or just call it Nutella.
The taste is much less sweet than feared, offering a remarkable nutty note, hints of coffee and a well determined bitterness. A good Brune withour star attitue.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
