3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark brown colour, surprisingly tall beige head; aroma of roasted sugar and malt, some yeast, apple and alcohol; taste of roasted malt and candy sugar with some fruitness and too intensive and unballanced alcohol; very far from the best belgian ales

Keg at Nota Bene in the correct glassware. Funny how that helps. Pours a muddy Brown with a cream head. Aroma of candied fruits and caramel. Quite delicate though. The flavour has some Belgian yeast character with pruney, raisiny sweetness nd some milk chocolate. The booze is warming. The brew is a slight let-down but still very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 corked and caged bottle. Pours a medium, well retained light beige head, with some lacing, over a clear ruby red (SRM 20) body.....nose is light toffee/caramel, loads of dried fruits, including cherry, plum, then cola, cinnamon,all from the malts and esters, minimal hop presence.....taste is sweet to start, with cherry, plum, more present, then vanilla, cinnamon tones arrive, followed by cocoa, then a light spice hop bitterness to finish, remaining sweet throughout.....mouth feel light, alcohol warmth present (no fusels), carbonation low on fizz, but with a light carbonic acid finish. The balance on this beer is to the malts and esters, with the hops adding a bit of balance. The complexity is quite good in both aromas and flavors. I would prefer a drier more digestible beer. The sweet dominates too much. BJCP 9/3/14/4/7

Bitter itrus aroma, beautiful chestnut colour. Starts with an apple flavour, but further into the beer begins to show flavours of darker fruits further into the bottle. Certainly gets nicer once the mouth adjusts. Soft palate, good mouthfeel.
