3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark ruby red with a strong brownish hue and a very small (less than 1/8") off white fizzy head, which diminished totally leaving behind a very small collar and poor lacing.
The aroma was of a moderate caramel malt and a sweet Belgian yeast with notes of dark fruit (raisons, figs & plums), banana, green apple and a slight alcohol tinge.
The taste was malty-sweet with notes of caramel and green apple early on and then took on a strong dark fruit presence with a touch of banana and had a slight red wine alcohol finish. The flavor lasted a decently long time proceeding the swallow with a sweet fruity taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and dry in texture with a strong ticklish carbonation.
Overall very well rounded Belgian Ale with a nice caramel fruitiness which blended well with the Belgian yeast, thus containing the high alcohol content...

Bottled 1/14/13, consumed 9/11/16.
Cloudy light mahogany, minimal tan head. Nose of deep molasses, raisin, allspice. Dark fruitiness. Lightly bitter, spicy. Muted, mellow sweetness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Long finish. Everything blends together beautifully. Undertone of alcoholic sharpness. This aged remarkably well. Excellent.

Sidder og hygger med denne øl, efter at have fået en almindelig dåseøl. Den giver nok lidt til øllen i den positive retning.
Let spritet, lidt brændt smag. Eftersmagen er efter min mening lidt for brændt.
Har ikke helt fylden til at smage af "rigtig Belgien".

The aroma is caddy sugar, fruit, spice. The color is light brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall enjoyable.

Solid malt, full palate, candy sugar, dark fruits, dates, figs. Low on hops but the malts is the superior flavor. It's perfect for a winter drinker
