Bottle shared by Gikiniji, thanks Sébastien! Pours a ??? brown (it is hard to rate in the dark :P) with a small ??? head. Aroma of dark belgian candi sugar and spices, maybe cloves. Taste is sweet and fruity, with grapes and other dark fruits dominating. Medium bodied. Not bad at all, I wish I can sample it again soon!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by gikiniji, thanks! Murky brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of liquorice, smoked malt (too much), dark fruits, spices, caramel and herbal notes. Taste is moderately sweet with liquorice, caramel, smoked malt, spices, grapes and light fruity notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Average to good Belgian Strong Ale. It’s hard to have a good balance between smoked malt and liquorice and this one do a good job at it.
