2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
33 cl. bottle. Almost mahogany with a weak head. The aroma is malty, very malty and sweet. The flavour is sweet, very sweet and it has notes of a lot of malt and nuts. IMO this is to sticky sweet, partly because it seems it doesn’t have anything else to offer, so I miss a bit of complexity and bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2007). For all the malt-lovers out there. Rich ruddy brown colour, and a taste to match. Sweet caramel malts are dominant, but with enough nuttiness and spiciness to make it quite interesting and not 1-dimensional. Did I mention huge amounts of malt?

Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy deep coppery pour with aroma of caramel malt, fruit, some vinous notes, plus some funky cabernet notes. Tastes fruity, with caramel malt, vinous, nutty, and some cognac notes. The hops and spice appeared at mid-palate, and blended well with the flavor.
