3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A tea brown color with a light brown head. A malty nose with a light spiced sugar and candy aroma. The flavor is nicely balanced with spice, caramel, and bread. A medium body but complex enough to make it appear rich.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown in color. Tasted like a spicey dubbel...very sweet and fruity in the nose. Flavor was full and complex yet easy to drink. I kinda like an easy drinking-low abv belgian like this. A sweetened tea, fruity flavor rounded out well to a semi-dry finish. Nice quaff.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark amber with a copper hue; thinnish head. Aroma was less than desirable: mold ... and very much like a shoe box. Malts were like cooked caramel. Very mild bitterness dried the tongue a little. Unfortunately, notes of box, cabbage ... moldy and musty.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Good foamy head. Colour is amber. Aroma is malt, leather and old books - stinky despite of best before datum in 10/04. Malt bitter mouthfeel giving nice malty aftertaste. Propably needs to be re-rated from draught sample.
