3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cL bottle from Poperinge. I thought it was a good brown but the aroma was strange (wet wool?). Not enough to take away from the flavor just strange. I tried a couple of bottes with the same outcome but I will buy some more for comparison and re-rate as required.

Decent beer, expected a bit more. Still a frothy head.
Silky texture. I think I want to try this beer once again.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Bargain beer at Delirium, 2 euros!!! Though uber past its prime.It pours hazy ochre with brown highlights; the head is bone coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, rye, nutmeg, brown sugar, and molasses. The taste is medium bitter with a little sweetness; there are notes of: rye, dark bread, orange zest, and short bread. The palate is medium light bodied and has medium carbonation; there is a heavy astringency, and it has a short finish. Overall, it was way too cheap to mind the age.

Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass brownish, huge head. Malty-spicy aroma. Starts strong, modest alcoholic, not too much. Fine spicy like christmas spices. Also with a fruity touch. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. A good one!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Modrig hefiger Antrunk, zum Glück ist dies nicht so stark wie vorher im Geruch. Dennoch wirkt das Bier fast faulig, das Malz kommt nicht genug zur Geltung. Später frischer, kernig, angesichts des Alkoholgehaltes erstaunlich mild, etwas entäuschend. Hier ist das Bier leicht schokoladenmalzig. Mäßig. 11/8/7/8/5/8
