3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl. bottle: Old darkly stained cherry wood liquid with a proud, creamy, tan hat. Aroma of dark caramel, brown sugar, a little cherry and tart plum. A hint of moss gives it some earthiness. Cherry, raisin, a touch of honey and some background roast pretty much sum up the upfront flavor. In the middle a little wood note pops up and then you are hit with marshmallows toasted over a campfire. This roasted sugar brings you through to chocolate. The marshmallow and chocolate last through a long finish where the alcohol let you know it is there. A touch of alcohol and spice sting to the back of the throat after swallowing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Week 2008)
Cloudy brown, thin head. Sweet candy aroma. Soft carbonation. Hugely liquoricy taste, with a bit of burnt rubber too. Alcoholic component helps lift some of the flavours up the nose. More characterful than most bruns - the liquorice really dominates.

Alcohol shows in the form of a nice burning touch. Aftertaste is mainly licorice and bigtime malts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Deca. Hazy russet colour with lasting beige head. Bit of dry malt, some choc. This is a very choccy malty bruin. It’s got some alcohol heat and depth. It’s decent, fine, but unchallenging.
