4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a Chimay trappist glass. Appearance is a dark, brownish copper with a moderate tan head. Aroma is lots of rich malts, Belgian yeast, dark bread, plums, and raisins. Very complex and rich. Taste, which mirrors the nose, is as intense and complex as the aroma. Great all-around beer.

Rating a classic beer is not easy for a newcomer. Here’s my first attempt.
Liquorice and molasses with gently roasted malt. Finish with a sharp liquorice alcohol feel. Alcohol rather felt but in a subtle way. Elegant beer. One of my all time favourite. Probably had a few hundreds bottles so far in my short life. Never met a beer enthusiast who doesn’t like this beer.

Glass from a magnum from 2010. Dry and yeasty, dark fruit, bread, malty. Not as full on as I remember. Interesting though.

750ml bottle at R2L in Philadelphia, PA. Sets the baseline for what to expect from a belgian beer. Smooth character with a depth of flavors. Notes of candied sugar and sweet plum tingle the tongue.

75cl bottle poured into chalice. Great aroma of belgian yeast with some bready fruit notes to it. Pours a beautiful dark brown with a light tan head that dissipates into a ring that sticks around. Tastes incredibly smooth with a great mouthfeel and carbonation. Great yeasty flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark red-brown with a white head. This rapidly disappears leaving a thin film. Slight aroma of malt with some leafy hop just detectable. Pleasant taste of sweet malt with some bitterness: well balanced. Palate is on the thin side, there is a floury edge to the finish. Ending dry, but the sweetness is still there. Overall: OK, better than I remember.
