3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet nose, no head. Bit of hops in the pallate but not a ton of depth. Becomes cloyingly sweet towards the end. Boring.

Beautiful ruby color. Drinkable ordinary Belgian Strong Ale, but with some pine needles and plastic…

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2004 [Re-Rate Jan 26, 2004] Small head when poured, disappears very quickly. Very clear, deep amber color. Metallic, malty aroma. Palate is quite light and a bit watery. Bitter flavor and finish, some roasted malt, but quite light-bodied in all. Not much aftertaste. Using roasted malt and more alcohol doesn't succeed in making this one a "real Belgian". Wasn't as bad as the first time, though :)

A few days past best before date. Aroma is heavy malty with hint of chocolade and a good part of licorice. The licorice is in the flavor too. Rocky head, off-white, fine lacing. Brown. Long big finish.
