2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle during some drunken exploits at the Priory Arms. The pourís deep brown with a small white head. The nose is belgian yeast. Brash sweet syrup, some spice. The taste is dominated by the sweet belgian yeast flavors. Heavy, syrupy malt notes. Flabby, big body. A pretty forgettable strong Belgian. Overall, nothing to see here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet, with honey and alcohol. Not much hop character or complexity. Basically itís a cheap-ass version of Duvel. Made for getting drunk quickly. Drinkable, but really not good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma hints at the higher alcohol content, some fo the alcohol is evident in the taste, but not overpowering. Lots of sticky lacework on the glass. Flavor of toffee under the alcohol tang.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle brought home from Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelburg. This one pours a crystal clear golden body that has a small blonding white head that immediately sticks to the sides of the glass. At first it smells a bit metallic and almost like boiled cabbage! Thatís a bit of a downer.. But after a while I get smoky sausage-tones in this aroma. Yeah, smoky salami blended with boiled cabbage in a metallic kettle. Thatís a first I guess, and the strange part is that itís actually not horrible at all. The taste is nice and typical for itís genre. A bit alcohol and yeast, white sugar with a gentle fruity-metallic hint. Yeah, it definitely tastes like it should this one, and it has a near burning alcohol aftertaste. Canít complain. 13.07.2012

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark yellow/golden colour with a large head, that sits slowly. Effortless aroma of white bread, cookies, caramel, vanilla, butter and honey. Very smooth, almost creamy beer with sweetish taste. Beer has 8,5% alcohol, but itís not noticible in taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. yellow, lagerish with sediment. nose is quite malty with belgian yeast esters, ala duvel. some greenish vegetable aromas also. body is full, a bit thick, sweetness, honey, malts, yeast esters. a belgian strong ale for sure. a bit too thick/sweet for my palate. the maltyness is also a bit too corny, and thereís a hint of herbal notes that I donít find appealing in these sorts of ales.
