UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Tap at Staminee de Garre. Nice stemless glass. Opaque redbrown, nice tan head, nice lacing; sweet malty nose, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, roasted, herbs; medium sweet, lightly bitter, hint of coffee; creamy texture, medium to full body; sweetbitter finish, roastiness remains. Not your typical bok but a good beer.

Pours a dark brown with a decent amount of off-white head. Smells of dark fruits, caramel, and brown sugar. Tastes sweet. Follows the aroma with cariamas brown sugar, and dark fruits. The taste is sweeter than the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/01/09 - Pours a brown amber colour with a creamy, khaki coloured head that slowly reduces to a surface film and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is dough, Belgian yeast, caramel, dark fruits and molasses. Taste is similar to nose, but somewhat muted. Toasted caramel, molasses, prunes and dough. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation and a drying, slightly bitter and sweet aftertaste. Finish is mildly boozy and warming as well. Sweet without being cloying and nicely balanced with hops. Not bad.

Hazy Brown brew that has the aroma of berries and bread. Taste is berries with sorta hazelnut and a slight alcohol twang. Sweet but not too sweet. Very good brew but for the price this one is only for the holiday season.
