3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Unclean, murky brown with a small, beige head. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit. Rather full and solid body. Sweetish malty with accents of overripe fruit - plums and apricots - and a slightly perfumy edge. Rather raw bitterness in the finish. 080806

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am noy a big fan of Belgian style beers but the lady at the store recommended it. I have to say it was one of the only ones I have actually finished. Poured a cola color with a slight hint of red. Huge head that quikly died down but stayed around the entire beer. Aroma is sweet/candy and slight malt. I get mostly dark fruit flavors in the taste, then some slight seet/candy and then slight malt with just the smallest of roastyness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nice dark brown cloudy body topped with a lasting beige foamy head. Wonderful malty/hoppy aroma with strong plummy/vineous notes and some lighter yeasty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste is complex and robust. It carries fruity, yeasty and subtle woody notes. Ends with a good and well balanced warming finish. Awesome beer!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque appearance but when held agaisnt a light turns a reddish color with sediment seen. Beer is a naked liquid that has no head. Small scent of yeast. Must be a really old and aged bottle because the carbonation level is flat but the flavor still maintains a light spicy yeast with caramel notes. Must be real good fresh. Now if only i could find a store that gets new shipments of this stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a maple syrup color with a thin off white head that doesn’t fade. The nose is carmel, toffe, and bready. The flavors are overall sweet raisins, brown sugar, carmel, dried fruits but balanced fairly well on the palate with spices and a smooth creaminess.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 bottle, poured in a Delirium Noel glass (don’t know wether this has the Coffee, caramel, prunes, raisins, alcohol aroma. Dark amber body, huge beige creamy head. The flavour of the head is spicy, with a creamy finish. A lot of sweets, spices, toffees, malt and caramel make up the palate, with a flavour which is quite bitter for a dark beer but with a sweet syrupy finish. However, it lacks some deeper complexity.

Pours a nice dark brown color; tan head has some freckles. Loads of yeast chunks floating- this one is a little ominous looking. Sweet brown sugar aroma, with a little alcohol. Flavors are sweet roasted malts, very sugary. A bit of alcohol in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge fruity aroma ...hints of pear, peach, apple as well as (very sweet) caramel/brown sugar. Nice foamy head, leaves behind a fine layer of bubbles on the surface. Very rich, heavy malt flavors balanced with the caramel-like sweetness. Slightly sticky or syrupy mouthfeel, and a hint of alcohol to the finish. Pretty good overall.
