3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium brown with a large fizzy light brown head that rapidly dissipated and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy with caramel malts and a sweet doughy yeast with a hint of dried fruit, some spices and a strong wine scent. It tasted moderately sweet with a strong dried fruit note at first and finished ever so lightly sour-sweet with a nice caramel flavor and a mild alcohol tinge at the end with the flavor lasting and average duration. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little syrupy in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing change to the typical Belgian Strong Ale.

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.

F: pale brown head.

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.
