A quality Belgian ale. Nice appearance, big malty aroma and notes of coffee in the flavour the likes of which I have not experienced in a beer of this type before. Malts dominate the taste. However, itís a
little unrefined on the palete.

Sweet fruit and nuts aroma. Deep brown, hint of red, slim coffee head. Huge malt flavour, a fine bitterness follows. Smooth and creamy, a very good Belgian Ale. (On tap.)

Looks nice, with a reddish brown body and a big rocky tan head. Flavor is rather sweet, with some notes of apples and cherries, but has a nasty cloying bitter finish.

Generous head of enduring foam. Fruity toasted nose. Soft on the palate with a nice touch of chocolate, toasted malt dryness and fruity front. Alcohol warms in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-brown-orange with good white-brown head.
Some mint in the fresh, malty aroma with hints of cherry kernels and rubber erasers. The flavor spicy with tones of almonds and apricot kernels. Itīs smooth and creamy with a peppery tanninous ending.
