3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Dark red-brown colour with a medium sized light brown head that almost vanishes whilst leaving a nice lace. I’m immediately struck by a malty, sweet and fruity aroma - I sense raisins. Full body. Taste is very malty with hints of chocolate and (for a Belgian ale!) a tiny bit of spice. Bitter finish.

may be this beer is not as tasteful as I wish. But that's what I think. The story and the typical glass however make this beer a real degustation

Dark brown color and a tan head. I got this on tap at Lop Lop in Brussels served in a stone mug with 4 handles – bonus points for appearance. Light nose, but pleasant. Big malt taste – caramelly and nutty. A little thinner than I wanted, though. Still quite good.
