3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Delirium Cafe, Bruxelles.
Deep brown beer with a fine creamy tan head. Looks delicious. Aroma of cherries with some cocoa, light barnyard, woods. Fruity sweetness in the flavor, the alcohol is very well hidden, could nőt be identified. Easy body, cherries and toffee, light roasted character. Fine tartness in the aftertaste. Easy drinkable, dangerous...

Ar: 6, Ap: 3, T: 5, P: 2, O: 8, Total: 2.4
Clear dark brown beer, cola like, very aery thin head, dissipates completely. Aroma: pretty sour, some caramel, dried fruits, but mainly sour. MF: practically no carbon, thin to medium body. Taste: pretty sour start, some caramel notes, bit of mocha and toast, slightly hoppy. Tastes like an infection to me, and to other members from the Gentse Biervereniging as well.
