3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear reddish/brown beer. Smells roasted malt, sugarcane, mollasses, bread yeast. Flavor is sweet malt. Didn’t like considering this should be a dark ale. Ok, it is quite carbonated but the body is too light. I missed something in there.

A little heavy on the booze, with some light smokey aroma. Finishes with some light bitterness. Pours murky brown without much head or lacing. A touch of sugary malt. Not a huge palate. Bottle.

33cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a slightly off-white head soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Brown sugar, caramel, spics and some chocolate. It’s an ok brew, but a tad too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml served in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours a clear dark amber color forming a medium thin bubbled beige head. Great retention and lots of soapy and molasses lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts and candy sugar. Light flowery hops. Belgian-style bready and earthy yeasts. A bit boozy and a bit bubblegum in the very end. Strong Belgian character, as expected
T: Sweet upfront. Very malty and fruity in the mouth too. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, candy sugar, oak. Some spices and some notes of bubblegum too. Light bitterness in the end. Hops are a bit citrus. Bready and biscuity yeasts profile. Again, quite Belgian
M: Heavy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Warming beer. Candy bittersweet aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Classic Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Recommended

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt, slightly earthy. 33 cl bottle pours with a large head that rapidly disappears. Red brown in colour, clear and attractive. Taste is sweet to start, becoming moderately bitter, with a light sourness. Sweet malt comes to dominate. Good mouthfeel, long moderate bitter finish. Overall a pleasing beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a murky brown with an off white head. Aroma of sweet berries, candy and caramel malt. Light to medium body, flavour much as the aroma, light liquorice. Decent if uninspiring.
