3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ottimo esempio davvero di Strong ale belgica, colore marrone con schiuma compatta e molto persistente. Naso molto complesso si avverte un pò di tutto, frutta, legno, leggero cioccolato e alcol. In bocca attacca dolce, ma poi la potenza alcolica prende il largo con finale asciutto e piacevole.

Un bell’abbraccio, davvero: naso di importante complessità, in bocca trionfa il torbato ma ben amalgamato con il resto.

Pours dark redish brown with off-white head - nice!- Aroma is buttery, caramel, raisin, milk chocolate, cream, butterscotch, ripe plums and yeast. Taste is kinda the same but add some hops and a slight amount of liquorice aswell.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 66 cl. Dark amber pour with a nice off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, figs, raisins, some butterscotch notes, maybe dms?, caramel malts, dark grapes, milk chocolate, ripe plums and even a hint of heavy cream?! Taste is rather yeasty, quite fruity, raisins, dark grapes, dates, still buttery notes, a slightly tart off-taste along the lines of soured milk, which overtakes the other really nice notes.

From a bomber. Medium-dark brown with a lighter head. Hops, caramels, and fruits. Finishes slightly bitter and slightly dry. Not overly so in either case.
