3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
average frothy offwhite head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick brownish-black body. aroma: heavy malty, dark chocolate, mild coffee, dried banana, raisin, brown sugar. if: moderate sweet ilght bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter light acidic; long duration. palate: medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light alcoholic finish. Dulçor de figo permeado por amargor lupulado tipicamente americano, que acaba se sobrepondo mais que o necessário. Dulçor traz também malte e café. Diferenciada, mas não é “deliciosa”, principalmente pelo estranho amargor, inadequado. Bem alcoólica, não esconde nada os 9%. 140 s

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky brown, a finger of beige head, not the prettiest. More hop aromas than I would expect from a Belgian style Dark. Fruity aromas of orange and darker fruits like fig. Taste is malty sweet and hoppy bitter, better as it warms. I’m not a fan of the extra hopping, but I guess I would expect it from Green Flash, but one of the weaker beers I’ve had from them which is disappointing, especially since its called "Grand Cru".

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice full and heavy Belgian style brew with a yeast and toffee palate. Pours a nearly pure black with a finger of beige head. The nose is sweet, malty, and fruity with notes of prune, raisin and caramel. Mild spiced notes on the finish lend a dubbel-esque style. Well balanced but heavy and rich throughout with big toasted Beglian malts.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One year old bottle pours a medium reddish brown with a little eggshell fizz. The aroma is a nice rich roasted malty brew with an herbal hint. The flavor is rich and malty, kind of chalky grains with a good bit of depth and roast. A nice light chocolate with whole grain bread feel. The hops are still well in the mix, an earthy herbal and dried flowers. Moderate carbonation leaves it feeling full and lingering on the tongue but with some dryness. Nice brew, did well to age one year.
