4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Number 1400 WooWhoo!! Popped the cap on this and had a small gusher. Lots of carbonation here I guess. Pouerd a deep chestnut brown with a thick khaki head. Took a while for the head to dissapate to a drinkable level.The head laced the sides during the whole drink.The nose is toffee sweet with dark fruits, malts,vanilla, brown sugar and caramel. Flavor is not overly sweet. Hints of vanilla, dark fruits and nuts with a nice alcohol warming and a small spice bite on the tounge. Mouthfeel is slick and finishes with the spice lingering around while warming my belly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark amber with beige tan head which lasts a while, nice looking beer. Aroma is intense, strong dried fruits, roasted malt, toffee/caramel, notes of licorice, coffee, smokey, woody and boozey. Taste is medium to strong sweet initially bet it settles nicely and becomes rather savoury dry bitter, certainly complex! Quite smooth in the mouth, mild carbonation. Pleasing lot lasting and warming finish. Very nice

750ml bottle, from Dutch’s, shared with Chris R. Very dark red / brown color. Ring of khaki head. Leaves some bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick, then dry in the finish. Bit of metallic up front, but that fades completely after this has a chance to sit for a bit. Dark fruit, bigger chocolate, nuttiness in the aroma. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, lighter bitterness. Just a touch of warmth. A solid, chocolatey belgian dark strong ale. Solid, tasty stuff. Gets better as it goes. Wish it was closer to $11 than $15, though.
