3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12/IX/2012 33cl bottle from Koelschip (Oostende) @ home - BB: VI/15 (2012-1020)
Very cloudy dark brown beer, lots of beige sediment floating around under a light beige aery head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of dried fruits, alcohol (at 6.5%?), dark caramel, overripe fruits, sugary. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: some (carbon?) sour first, milk chocolate, big sugary, some mocha, little bitter, alcohol, fruity hops. Aftertaste: chocolate, some mocha, dried fruits, little sour. Actually pretty good, but the alcohol is too noticeable for only a 6.5% beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-brown in colour with an off-white head. Aroma is of sugary malt, slightly roast. Taste is initially sweet, with a strong bitterness coming through. Rich, full body, chocolate and grain, with a dry finish. Overall, not bad. The bottle was a bit of a gusher, which was a shame.

Bottle, shared between myself and a cottage pie. Pours hazy brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel and yeast. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with some light chocolate notes coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A bit of a sugar bomb this one.

Belgian stout, so it’s very sweet and yeasty and lacks the roastedness. Not very good.

33 cl. bottle split by 2 @ Rampkrot. Shared cost & picked up @ Bar Oud Postje. Color is dark red fruits brown with a tanned head. Nose is pure dust, light mould & lots of sugar. Taste is very dusty, light mould, sugary, sweet malts, cobwebs, herbs, soy souce, bitter herbs, too much off-flavours going in all directions, ruining it a bit. Touch mineral in the back. Carb. is high.
