4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite a sweet brown beer. Not uncommon to "Kasteel" since their popular "Rouge" is tooth breaking sweet as well. But this one has a better balance to it. I like the syrupy feel and flavor with raisins, dark fruits like figs & dates. Tofee, caramel and brown sugar rule the flavor, but are the flavors i typically enjoy. Good for desert too. Has a mild bitter to balance it out. I just really enjoy this one :)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
opaque, very dark brown with a tannish head that disappears quickly. smell is leathery, dark, raisins, alcohol. taste is very pruney, a little bit chocolatey, some brightness in it. distractingly sweet by the end of it. palate seems strangely thin but overall comes across well. this is a pretty nice, though largely straightforward beer.

This is good stuff. Pours deep brown with little off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits. Very smooth, creamy. Taste is mostly cola with a smooth finish.

330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep silky dark colour. Aroma is chocolate and dark toffee. Taste is rich & boozy, possibly too much so. A touch sweet with chocolate and fruitcake but ultimately rather syrupy. Not diggin this too much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too much alcohol in aroma covering fruity, chocolate and caramel notes. Taste is sweet with alcohol bitterness, quite sticky mouthfeel, drinkable beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Marrone scuro dai riflessi rosso rubino; poca schiuma che svanisce rapidamente. Aroma di ciliegie, liquore sherry, frutta scura (prugna, datteri, fichi), caramello, spezie e note vinose. Al palato è dolce, prosperano sapori derivanti da frutta scura (prugna, datteri), uva passa, mirtilli, zucchero di canna, ciliegie, caramello, spezie e un qualcosa di liquoroso. Birra sbilanciata sulla dolcezza, con l’alcool sempre in primo piano, corpo pieno, carbonazione leggera.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. BB Nov 2018. Pour dark brown, reddish in the light. Minimal and short-lived off white head. Smells like deep sweet fruit esters, Plums, cherries, raisins, some brown sugar, some booze. Ditto for the taste. Juicy fruitiness. Allen’s apple juice on steroids. Some port-like qualities. Syrupy mouthfeel. Warming. Dessert in a glass. Very sweet but somehow not too sweet.
