3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Body is brown, not unlike coffee. Upon first sniff, almost a candyshop nose. After moderate warming, aroma evolved to sexy, sweet dough. Fair carbonation. Sweet, with a hazelnut finish (hint of Cognac). Upon belch, mild Tastykake. Interesting, but not special.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Opaque mohagany/auburn color. Strong molasses, alcohol and yeast scents. I agree with alabamajohn that it’s like sweetened prune juice. I was expecting more for what I paid for a 4 pack.

Cloudy brown. Sweet. Sweet. Tastes like sweetened pune juice. For the price and reputation, you would expect more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Cloudy brown body with a large off-white head that dissipated slowly. Aroma of caramel, figs, and molasses with yeast. Initial flavor is slightly bitter with heavy alcohol notes and some caramel sweetness. I’ll let it warm a bit...still not my favorite, quite bitter. Decently rich palate with pretty strong carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with brown highlights and a thin light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and figs. Flavor of chocolate, figs and nuts. The palate is light and dry and the carbonation is moderate. There are interesting elements in there but somehow this beer fails to really captivate me, I can say that it’s good though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This belgian ale is dark red with an off white head that starts bitter and strong. After warming about mid bottle the flavor mellows into a fruity finish that leaves little aftertaste. Not a bad belgian. Just let it warm a little and don’t let the first few sips discourage you.
