3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. A big active beige head finally manages to subside. Sticky lacing remains. The beer under is hazed copper with carbonation visible. The aroma is spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg with fruit underneath. Those spices are tasted along with yeast. This is a little odd. Sweet malts and dark over ripe fruit. Some pepper is tasted mid glass along with some hop notes. This falls well short of great.

Big bubblegum aroma with a strong vein of green apple. Flavor has cellar notes, wood, rich fruit, bourbon...wait, no...brandy?... and a lightly malty, bready finish. Amber color. Decent. (on tap, the Muddy Pig, St. Paul)

(Bottle). The smell and the taste is slightly sweet but also fresh and tangy with flavors of flowers, fruity caramel and yeast. In the aftertaste there is a lingering mild bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Copper with off white head. Heavy toffee caramel flavours from the off, sweet and syrupy in a big boil of middling malts. Some herby, yeasty flavours find their way through, even a lemony hop note at one point. Heavy Belgian Strong though.

Cloudy amber beer. Dry palate, low carbonation. Dry dusty malt. Light touch of spice and a little honey. Uninspiring and boring.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a cloudy carmel brown. Foamy white head left a little runny lace. Some untoasted grain flavors. Some carmel notes but not particularly sweet. Tastes like a very watered down dubbel. Slight sour and bitter present, but still more a ghost of a beer.
