3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma is of yeast and fruit. Flavor is similar but also with caramel and spice. Doesn’t have much of an alcohol burn that I would expect from something that tastes like this. I read a review that said it was "complex, yet boring". That’s so completely apt. This was 5 bucks for a bottle, so I’ve got to say there’s no way I’ll be grabbing this again all things considered. But it does have a solid amount of alcohol (even if it could’ve been more)! And I still say it’s actually very, very good! I just feel like maybe there was some lost potential here, should’ve been a much bigger beer. 9% abv.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromat: estry, zioła, lekkie utlenienie, karmel, alkohol. W sumie belgijski.
Wygląd: barwa ciemno czerwona, zamglona. Piana beżowa, obfita i długo utrzymująca się, ale piwo wydaje się przebazowane.
Smak: słodycz, złamana kwaskowoscią, karmel, owoce, melano, alkohol. Goryczka niewielka, nie drażni. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i kwaskowo- alkoholowy finisz. Nieźle, choć mogło by być świeższe.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, possibily hazy, off-white moderate head, decent persistence, little lacing. Aroma has an intense and warming liquorous wine character, with notes of caramel and dark fruits. Taste opens sweet with caramel, dark fruits and a pleasant warming feel, alcohol is nicely hidden tough. Finish has a hint of bitterness and is suprisingly dry for the style. Medium body (actually quite light per style), smooth and clean but still warming palate. Overall it’s a clean and well done but not particularly exciting beer

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of an serious beer, very intensive, deep, yeast and malt very well balanced, dark red to brown with a lasting foam. Lasting taste of a roasted coffee/malt but not to dominant, nothing like a porter. Satisfying palate. Overall a very good strong Belgian dark ale.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle bought in BC Liquor store. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a slightly tan head. Complex aroma is dark fruits, toffy, similar to Belgian Quads. Carbonation is quite high. Taste is malty, dark fruits, caramel and notes of roasted malt. Some notes of iron in the aftertaste, unfortunately. Good one.
