3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle poured into 500ml Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark hazy brown, almost black, medium tan head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a very thin head for most of the drink. Lots of carbonation, making it feel creamy, decent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruits, especially raisins, lots of yeast, and a bit of chocolate. Flavor just didnít come together as well as I was hoping, but a decent drink nonetheless.

Head is large, frothy and off-white. It diminishes mostly. Body is copper.
Aroma contains dark bread, molasses, raosted and toasted malts, pine, lime, grape, plum, apple, pineapple and spices.
Flavor is light acidic, then sweet followed by sweet and light bitter and finishing in sweet and bitter.
Body is medium to full with creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Itís good, but not as good as I remembered it from before.

Tap at Bulldog Uptown. Name brand glass. Beautiful deep plum, almost brown color. Lacing is impressive. Smell reminiscent of bubble gum, dark fruit, and some oak elements. Taste follows suit with plum and raisin qualities. Sweetness prevails but end reminds you there are still traditional beer elements. Absolutely love the end of this one. Order this immediately.

A very average beer for a belgian ale. There are alot better beers out there these days. Somewhat boring beer. Thin fading head. On draft. Light aroma.

(Bottle). Aroma of sweet malt with hints of yeast and alcohol. Sweet and fruity taste of malt and raisins with warming alcohol in the finish. Well-balanced beer that fits well to drink on a cold winter day.
