4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Bottle. Poured a rich medium to dark brown with a small off-white foamy head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of roasted malts, a mild flowery hops and a light scent of a sweet yeast with notes of dried fruit. It tasted slightly bitter-sweet in the beginning with a hint of raisons and finished moderately sweet and malty and had a slight alcohol tinge at the end with the flavor only lasting a short time. Mouthfeel was medium in body and very creamy yet oily in texture. Overall a fantastic/outstanding brew with one hell of a kick. One of my favorites, but don’t drink too many!!!!!!

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from the LCBO.Pours a bubbly tan head which left no residue after quickly dissipating. Opaque brown/red (copper) body. Aroma predominantly is yeast and alcohol contrasted well with caramel and malty notes. Mouthfeel is heavy due to a lively carbonation and a strong alcohol finish. Wood notes are present, however subtle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s very sweet in the aroma, with a small note of caramel and delicate notes of strong alcohol. It’s dark copper color, almost non-transparent, with small head. It’s highly carbonated. In taste it’s sweet, with small notes of caramel and fruits. But mostly it’s very alcoholic, alcohol is definitely on the foreground, so strong it sear in the mouth.

A great Beer to drink after a good meal or if you want a complex Beer for a quite cheat price. It's dark and complex with flavours that will stay in your mouth for a while.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle ordered at Newsroom. Ridiculously expensive at this spot. Order somewhere else. I’m not kidding. Deep plum color with minor lacing that I attribute to my own not good enough pour. First word that comes to mind is smooth. The best of the Chimay color wheel. Malty sweetness at the forefront without overdoing the biscuity taste of other varieties. Just a perfect balance.Hides the alcohol really well. I’m a huge fan. This was number 300!
