4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Holy shit! Hazy red when poured with bits floating about (yummy!) and a thick beige head. Aroma of caramel and yeast. The taste has a great caramel/toffee tone overall with a bit of malt and fruit to it. A bit of a hoppiness to it as well. There’s an alcoholic bite to it at the end along with hops, and it goes perfectly with the overall flavor. This is one of my favorite beers I’ve had. A bit intense on overall caramel/roasted flavor, but in the end I’d say all the elements add up to a balanced mix. Speaking of, it’s actually fairly watery and thin for what the flavor would tell. Not thin, but medium mouthfeel. Amazing beer, will grab all the bottles I can and recommend the same to anyone who happens to read this! 9.5% abv.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pulloa avatessa olut ryöppyää ulos pullosta hirveällä tahdilla. Lasiin päädyttyään paksu vaahto häviää kuitenkin nopeasti ja jättää vain aavistuksen pienen vaahtoreunuksen. Tummanruskea olut. Tuoksu todella houkutteleva, suklainen, tummaa hedelmää ja luumua. Maku maltaisen makea ja pehmeä, tumman hedelmäinen kokonaisuus. Täyteläinen olut pitkällä maltaisen makealla suun täyttävällä jälkimaulla. Runsas hiilihappoisuus pehmentää kokonaisuutta tyylikkäästi. Todellinen taideteos.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at The Mondial de la biere. The color is a dark brown with thick beige head. The taste is sweet and heavy of fruits like cherries and also dark chocolat and herbs with a good serving of malt plus yeast. The aroma is pleasing to the nose and lets you know what is coming in the taste.I enjoyed this beer a lot.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
hazy walnut brown colour with a lot of small particles, minimal beige head; aroma of dried cherry (maybe plum and figs, too), dark chocolate, walnut, wet leather and minimal herbal notes; taste is the same with less intensiveness and Belgian yeast notes; almost perfect - if the taste was as intensive as the aroma it would be a magnificient masterpiece...anyway, it’s still brilliant!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
1.5l bottle thanks to Lore. Hazy dark orange body with lots of floating sediment. Aroma of caramel, orange zest, figs, raisins and pepper. Taste of candi sugar, orange zest, raisins, dates, cloves and some floral hops. Very smooth beer. Based on the aroma it seems to be stronger, but the taste is not boozy. Awesome beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bottle that has been lying around for several years. It says "Brasserie des Rocs." I remember being unimpressed with this originally and put aside a couple bottles for a few years. A cloudy brown with small beige head, a ton of large particulate matter. Aroma sugary malt, caramel, chocolate, subtle toasted nuts. Medium body, lightly carbonated, a touch of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet but finishes dryer. Caramel, dark fruits, maybe a little dry hops, figs. Not sure if the original bottle I had wasn’t good or if it’s improved with age but this is quite nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Trappist glass. Brownish with light borwn, semi-densed head, poor head retention and lacing. Nice and deep dried, black fruits aroma - mainly plums and raisins, which are dominant. You can also find here some brown sugar and spices (cloves, lightly cinnamon). Taste lightly sweet, it’s more like the quadrupel, but not so malty. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy texture, finish is semi-dry, spicey and lightly bitter. In overall this beer is clean in it’s style with predominant malty and spicey character.
