4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Jan thanks a lot. A dark amber beer with huge creamy head. Nose is intense on red fruit, spices and smooth caramel. Aroma is on smooth and creamy caramel, with spice, over ripped quetches, vanilla and cherry touch, clove hints, light chilli notes but not excessive at all. Body is very sweet, intense red candied fruits, complex, prune, toffee. Finish is more on chilli and red vegetables but still some good round caramel and Belgian yeast there, light bubble gum. This beer is very nice and remind me the Pannepeut from De Struise with additional brandy touch. Very nice, what to expect more ?

Very dark, fluffy head. Dried fruit, prunes and figs. Deceivingly light mouth feel, very drinkable. White peper, salt, liquorice. The chili is very discreet. Incredible beer!
