4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark, red-brown beer with a beige head and a smell of fruit, malt and caramel. Flavour is sweet and rich. Malt, fruit, caramel, a touch of hop so itís not just sweetness and the aftertaste has a bit of a lingering bitterness to it as well. This is a very nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sip in Tallinn. BB 01.2018. Pours brownish copper with thick beige head. The aromaís roasted malts and caramel, dark dried and smoked fruits, chocolate, earthy-herby hops, somewhat spicy. Tastes sweet upfront with bitterish continuation. Caramelly, chocolaty, earthy-herby-spicy, kinda muddy flavour. Lightist medium body, dryish on the palate and in finish. Soft mouthfeel. Earthy bitterness. Near nonexistent carbonation. The alcohol shows as rather nice warmth in the throat but overall itís hidden behind the wall of sweetness. Unique - donít think Iíve had a BS like this before. Iím not a big fan though, just doesnít tickle me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown beer, medium tan head. Nose is slightly metallic, belgian yeast, dried fruit, chocolate notes, coffee bitterness. Flavor is dark fruits, hops, dark chocolate and coffee, surprising hop bitterness in the finish with something nutty and dry. Lingering dry aftertaste. Hoppier and drier than exptected, also the coffee bitterness was pretty nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown body, medium tall creamy head, some floating sediment. Aroma has dark caramel with herbal hoppiness. Sweet caramelly taste with dried fruits, dark chocolate covered prunes, unsweet black coffee and some yeast. Notable hoppiness for a dark Belgian - the hops provide more coffee-type of sourness than dry bitterness. Slightly sourish and notably hoppy finish. Quite interesting and not very typical BSA from Belgium.
