Marrom avermelhada, boa formação de espuma de média duração com uma fina camada perene e marcas pelo copo. No aroma logo aparecem as leveduras belgas, junto com as notas de malte tostados, caramelo e frutas vermelhas. Em primeiro plano o sabor traz um leve adocicado e o frescor do lúpulo, depois surgem as frutas vermelhas e o malte. Corpo médio, no retrogosto contrasta um agradável dulçor e amargor. Breja saborosa.

The beer has a fruity aroma with a large frothy head and an intense coffee taste, with the bitterness of the beer coming through a second later.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of big caramel malt, some nutty notes, hints of dark fruit, slight oaky tones, hints of earth. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, toffee, caramel, hints of earth into a bit of oak, slight corny, grainy notes, finishing very sweet. Definitely good for a dubbel, but still not in my favorite of styles.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pour is a deep opaque brownish crimson with a big light tan head. Aroma has a nice roasted nuttiness with essence of plum and banana. Taste is dark fruits with a blend of spice and sweet citrus. The nutty roastiness comes through in the finish. Fairly light mouthfeel, carbonation maybe a bit too effervescent for the style, but otherwise quite good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 0,33l. BBD: 09/04/15. Pours clear medium brown to ruby liquid, big frothy tan head. Aroma: malt, resins, caramel, light candied fruits, later some alcohol and win notes, nice. Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, light to medium sour, strong metallic disgusting taste - later after heating fades off, red fruits, malt, caramel, bit watery, Palate: medium body, near oily texture, average carbonation, abrupt sweet resin finish. Overall: disappointing, average drinking in it´s style, bit watery not complex at all, the different notes in taste plays each their own role, they do not play together and that metallic taste :(

Bottle - pours dark red with a large off white head. Aroma is banana, cloves, toastiness and vanilla. Taste begins with banana and fruit, then followed by a pleasant medium sweetness and finally some slightly bitterness, roasted malt, vanilla and spices. Slight smokiness. Medium body with a medium to strong carbonation. Delightful stuff.
