Shared a 33cl bottle from Delheize (Luxembourg). Pours a light brown in colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, lightly smoked and fruity. Medium carbonation and medium body. Flavour is a little too sweet for me, but overall is a good beer. I was surprised!

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel malt aroma.
Small very light brown head. Long lasting. Clear brown/dark amber colour.
Taste is caramel malt, sour fruit (?), bitter and some metal in the end.
Fills the mouth nicely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brown with a thin offwhite head that leaves insane lacing. Aroma is of sweet caramel, toffee and the likes. Taste is sweet but not coma-inducing sweet, still really sweet though. Missing a little bitterness in there I think. Flavors of candies, maple syrup. Carbonation is light and body is full. Mouthfeel is kinda thick. Not bad at all, just missing a little complexity IMO.

DP.

Definitely a must taste; rich in flavour (and somewhat in alcohol), delicate and smooth to the finish. A lovely head, excellent palate and colour. Now brewed in Belgium in seems, probably at Steenhuffel. Available in my local Brussels pub!
