3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark and red with a small head. Promising big malty aroma. Dissappointing palate though, sweet raisins, and a little nutty.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong alcohol on the nose paired with a semi-transparent amber colour. Overall, a little bitter in flavor but impressed none the less

Bottle from World Market. Bottle is 8.5%. Very dark brownis color on the pour. Decent sized head. Aroma is dry and dark. Spicy with quite a bit of bitterness. A hint of tartness. Dry bitterness seems to be dominant. Nothing special.

Black red color. Fat head lasts to the end. Fruity, spicy, dirty, nose. Vanilla spice flavored, kind of sour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid brew, just a little rough on the edges. Pours very murky, and a dark amber. VERY fizzy, even on the second pour. Very sweet, and fruity. Very drinkable for the fizzzy mouth.

From a 22 oz. 2007. Great head, big creamy off white color and frothy. I was afraid it might come over the trappist glass, but it settled down nicely after a few minutes of waiting. Amber brownish hue. body was little thin but overall a nice texture and full of different flavors of fruityness. Would have it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
cheery type of a brew. candy fruit flavors that really are not that impressive, but not offensive. good mouthfeel. alcohol is strongish on the buds. like to feel a bit more body. a mild tweak could really push this beer up there. insufficient carbonation profile.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not as impressed as I was by Delirium Tremens. Pours a slightly hazed copper with a thin small bubbled offwhite head. The nose lightly sweet with fruit and a definite bit of bubblegum. Alcohol is surprisingly forward. Some floral hops. I liked the body on this when it was cooler, but as it warmed, it was flat and lacking body. Latter pours from the bottle showed this was a bit fizzy at first, but went flat fast with warming and swirling. The bubblegum and alcohol comes out in the flavor quite a bit. A bit of raisin, but mostly a thin sweet and dry fruity alcohol kick. Some creaminess, floral hops, maybe peppery Saaz? A bit acidic, perhaps some apple cider? Creamy fruity finish, alcoholic funky aftertaste. Not a huge fan, I need some more sweet dark malt character, less alcohol, and perhaps a bit more body on this fizzy to flat enigma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark fruit and cookies, with a strong kick of alcohol in the taste and nose. Tasted side by side with their Tremens. The alcohol isn’t played as well here.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle from Quinns. Not a Huyghe fan full stop and this does nothing to change that. All alcohol and no finesse. Thin in the body for what it is. Nothing really stands out in the flavour or the nose other than nasty fruit and old brown sugar. Almost as low quality as their Americana fest of a bar.
