3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep copper hue with an enormous, rocky off-white head and thick, fluffy lace with lasts the duration, as does a big head riding atop the brew.
Aroma is a bit musty, somewhat floral and spicy. Hints of carob and alcohol hit the nose.
Taste is malty and complex, smooth and sweet. Starts with a medium mouthfeel, sweetness hits the tip of the tounge, is balanced out somewhat by a tartness, but the overall impression is sweet caramel, zany cinnamon and coriander spicing, and a long, lingering finish with a carbonation bite.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark red color and a sparse head, to say the least. Dried fruits in the aroma, plums and cherries? Great taste, very complex. Sweet dried fruits at the beginning, and ending with a hoppy bitter note. Very easy to drink. Thanks Sue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Poured a deep murky amber brew with a nice huge foamy white head that's long lasting. ABV is bit too omnipresent but excellent carbonation. Taste is sweet with some quite complex mix of spice. I notice that some of the other review mentioned a metallic taste, which I have heard of before. If I recall well, the metallic taste is from the hops and usually goes away after the bottle is aged a bit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer 9 Belgium trip. Consumed at 'T Brugse Beertje, an awesome little beer bar. The woman who served us was the same woman posing next to Michael Jackson in a picture on the wall above the fireplace, just about 20 years older now. Draft. Dark brown, nice head. Malty nose. Not much really complicated in flavors, just some yeast, light toffee, dry hoppy flavor at finish. But well done.

Smooth fruit and pepper on the nose. Look is dark brown/purple with a white head. Very smooth in flavour - like parma violet sweets. Slightly floral in character, too. Nice foam in the mouth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown head that diminishes quickly. Dark red-brown colour. Sweet and spicy. Not as medicinal as the dubbel and therefore better IMO.
