3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl from Dranken Geers. BB 12/2013.
Brune foncée, col gazeux disparaissant vite laissant un léger doré sur le verre.
Arôme malt, levure avec des épices me rappelant le pain d’épice. D’ailleurs ce profile est déjà à noter sur d’autres bières et doit surement venir de la levure. Profile est agréable entre malt et épice rappelant le clou de girofle et mélasse sur un fini léger choco et une pointe de fruit aigre.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes: Poured murky, cloudy nut brown, with 1/2 finger tan head. Complex aroma- nutty, with a strong note of dark candied fruit and a mild mustiness from the yeast. Full-bodied, with a touch of syrupiness. Flavor is sour candied fruit/herbal up front that gives way to nutty and bready yeast notes in the finish that linger mildly. The fruity sweetness subsides a bit as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 04/20/2012. This brew is a reddish-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes slowly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel malt, dark fruit and a bit of yeast. Full-bodied with a sweet malty character with notes of raisins and yeast. The finish is syrupy sweet with a fruity and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels
Hazy brown color; large head with short retention. The aroma is mild, with malt, caramel, yeast, vegetables. The body is thinner than expected; there is caramel flavor, a touch of chocolate, but also some liquorice, vegetables, spices (anise and cinnamon), herbs; ordinary bitterness, and some alcohol warmth in the end. Nothing special.
