3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. The aroma offers toffee and honey malt notes, along with sweet berry and glace cherry. Mild floral hops up front lead into a berry flavour, with some slightly jarring woody notes coming through. Port in the mid-palate gives way to an alcohol finish. On the whole this is not a bad beer, but it does have some slightly jarring aspects that set it back a little.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Clear, copper red to amber body with a nice, lacing off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dry fruit and toast. Flavor is really sweet and otherwise like aroma, caramel malt, dry fruit, toast and a moderate bitterness towards the end. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Basically way too sweet, but as some Belgium somehow manage to create some kind of balance even with this sweetness it feels pretty nice. Quite enjoyable actually.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
