Bruinrood bier. Ruikt zoetig, beetje fruit. Smaakt vrij zoet. Eigenlijk een nietszeggend bier maar drinkt goed weg.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear crisp dark red-brown beer with a foamy head and lots of column bubblies.
Smell is caramel, coriander, cumin. Metal and hints of sourwood, leather and sweetness.
Taste is bitter sweet. Quite dry, nice caramel/honey sweetness. Wood. Cottage cheese, maybe nuts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spiced ’massive ale’ from a brewery in Hulst in the southwestern Netherlands, close to the Belgian border. Rocky, yellowish white, stable head, colour dark bronze with reddish hue, misty. Malty and bit yeasty aroma with impressions of caramel, cereals, chocolate, pear, banana, brown bread, cloves, bayleaf... Soft fruity and malty, sweetish taste, bit chocolatey, quickly evolving into a spicy dryness in which the - effectively used - bayleaf reveals itself, as well as a vague sourness from the rye; hoppy tail. Quite nice, actually.

0,75cl bottle shared
Appearance: Amber brown with hardly a head, foating particles show up hallfway the bottle.
Aroma: sweet caramelised malts and a bit of fruit, thin and not that complex
Taste: Sweet caramelised malts,alcohol, honey cereals. Dry finish
Thin watery body, slightly above medium carbonation. (but too for the body.)
I expected much more from this.

30 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ hetbiermoment.nl. Hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with some caramel. Taste is likewise and also a bit oxidated. Aftertaste is rather short for such a strong beer. Kinda boring.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2015 Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, with some dark fruity notes, spices. Flavour is sweet malts. This is a very malty beer, a bit unremarkable, but I enjoyed it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Extremely cloudy dark dark amber, full of particulate matter. Thin lacy head. Aroma of fruitcake and a bit of menthol. Flavor is very hilly. In parts it tastes sort of like coca-cola; in others, like puffed wheat with honey cereal. Palate is watery for so dark a beer. Overall impression is that something is just a bit off.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber brown, little head. Cloudy with some floating particulate matter. Bubblegum aroma. Light body, oily texture, pronounced alcohol in the middle and on finish. Kind of odd.
