4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Awesome, awesome beer. Pours a dark brown with almost purple highlights. A dense, beige head. Nose heavy on raisins and toffee, along with malty undertones. Flavor is super rich and sweet. More dark fruits. Some smoke and coffee in the latter stages of the flavor. Nice funky yeast hints as well, especially in the tail. Sweet and syrupy finish. Delicious.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkel rötliches Bierr mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, Gewürze, röstmalzig. Geschmack süß röstmalzig, hefig fruchtig, erinnert schon fast an ein Weizenbock.

Golden-brown colour. Dark fruits and olives on the nose with raisins, dark sugars and bubblegum. Thick, sweet sugar taste with light raisin and fruit. Typical oversweet American Belgian attempt..I will never like this type of unbalanced beer.
