3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy deep brown body. Frothy, tan head, mostly lasting. Aroma of cookie, toasted malt, bread, herbs, mustiness. chocolate, licorice. Hint of pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning velvety in the finish, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness with notes of anise in the taste balance the sweet malts. Tastes of mint and clover are noticeable. Lacking a richness that one would expect in a 9% Belgian strong.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 Tap in Moeder Fontainas. Brown colour rather than black. Lovely full malty character, with spice and a bit of booze, but they must have loaded the hops in here as it still finishes dry, bitter and long. Lots of flavour - an excellent beer.

750 ml bottle - pours dark brown with red hint - steady 2 finger head. Aroma of dark malt and caramel, some citrus hints as well. Medium to full body with a nice baalnce between sweetness and freshness. Combined this with crued milk cheeses and the combination gave a nice chocolaty finish to the beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. A minimal sized off-white head sits on top of an unclear, brown body. Sweetish caramel nose with dried fruits, some alcohol and a touch of spices and hops. Sweetness, caramel and dried fruits in the finish. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Pleasant finish with European hop flavor and bitterness. Wouldn’t mind having more of this one. 110826
