Subtle aroma of spice and malt. Surprisingly bland and nondescript when compared to the other offerings from Huyghe. One expects a spice bomb, but perhaps this warrants another tasting. Tried at the Bruges bierfest in 2012 with Jess and Dave.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby red with a fluffy tan head. Aroma of Belgian sugars, bread, and some spice. Taste is not as noticeable, with the sweet malt/sugars the most prominant, and doughy yeast flavor on the tail end. Alcohol is hidden well, with no detection. Not a bad beer, but price would deter me from purchasing again.

Warm bottle found under the stairs. The countdown begins here. Excitable cherry red pour with a piled nicotine whip of head. Banana-yeasty aroma with dried bark, plum brandy, brown sugar, clove, heady pear and orange liqueur snorts. Warm and yeasty with heady overripe stone fruit (plum, nectarine) peppered with alcohol heat, black cherry throat sweet and elusive spice. Finishes warm and medicinal with cherry and cough mixture. Fairly standard robust Belgian strong
