4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brownish red pour, very hazy. It’s almost an orange colour when help up to a light. Very small bubbles in the head. Nice lacing. Nose reminds me of something fruity. Plumb I think it is. Its kind of weak but really appealing once you catch it. Very full bodied. A touch thick. A bit of a quick attack to the mouth at first that fades quick. A surge of spice and carbonation. It’s like a quick bite or nip. Then that mellows out very slowly and pleasantly. It ends very dry and clean. A very enjoyable palate. What’ I can’t really tell you though is the flavours that are in there. It’s all very subtle. Cranberry at first? A burst of sweet tart, like the candy with a bit of bite, cinnamon? Then it just mellows out so nice. It’s not so much the taste changes but just mellows out. Really dig this. Wish I had bought more than 2.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Coloração entre marrom e vinho, espuma de fácil formação e bastante duradoura, carbonatação visível e "viva" no copo. Aroma adocicado, uva passa, framboesa, mas um leve toque de vinagre que diminuiu um pouco com o tempo (talvez esteja vencida, não foi possível ver a data no rotulo). Paladar trás novamente frutas escuras, corpo licoroso, carbonatação média, álcool aparente um pouco acima do desejável. Aftertaste adocicado e persistente, mas mediano em qualidade. Pretendo experimentar novamente porque tem sinais de estar fora do padrão.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
F: pale brown head.
C: murky hazy red brown.
A: dark malty, port wine, dates, honey, chocolate, a lot of dark sweet caramel malt, alcohol and faint earthy mushroom and yeast aromas.
T: remind of Struise Pannepot, full caramel body, low carbonation, porto like taste with a lot of plums, cherry, caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, a hints of coffee, raisins, wood, lemon, anyway great beer and surprisingly found in Carrefour express beyond the corner just for 1,6e, recommend to taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color y aspecto de cafe con leche. Bastante opaca y con grandes trozos de sedimento. Buen aroma, caramelo, ciruelas... Muy potente en boca con gran densidad y un sabor complejo que recuerda caramelo, café, regaliz, y frutas rojas. Final potente y alcoholico.

Chestnut brown/amber with a big old light beige cap.
Nose is sweet, candied almonds, caramel, light yeast, dark fruit rinds.

Ok Belgo, drinks below its ABV but a little overly sweet for me.
