3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy red-brown with lots of sediment floating around and a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit, caramel malt, yeast and spice. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, overripe fruit, brown sugar, yeast and spice with a dry, metallic, boozy finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 bottle. A hazy, dark brown color with a small, off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is composed of caramel malts, port wine, and smoked dark brown ham. Taste of barrel, wood, smoked ham, a touch of chocolate - it is a tad vinous. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and also sweet and chocolaty. Overall not a bad beer, like everything could be improved.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 cl bottle Another wonderful Belgian beer, dark, nice aroma, good feel on the tongue. Nicely balanced with alcohol, a bit bitter but at the right level for me. This would be nice to try on tap....

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at restaurant. Cloudy orange-brown with a rich nose - think oud, alcohol, Christmas and a leather saddle. The nose sets the tone for the taste - intense leather with lavashak, stone fruit, and some well controlled alcohol, which lends the beer a good body. This one is quite good actually.

330ml bottle from Verheyde, Watou. Pours dark brown, good cream head. Aroma is dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel. Taste is smooth, well-balanced full flavour, perhaps not as sweet as a Belgian dubbel but in the same ball-park. Very tasty indeed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toffee coloured pour, relatively clear, reasonable sized beige head. Sweet aromas of caramel, plums, dates, bread. The sweetness is also reflected in the taste but with a strong hoppiness as well - burnt caramel, brown toast, plums, cola, earthy and spicy hops. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied and slick. Quite good without being outstanding.
