4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A cork open with a nice pop. A beer is dark brown with a big, dense and yellowish beige head. The nose is interesting and very tastefull, sweet strawberries, dark fruits, spices, some aromatic perfume nuancees. Taste is intensive, dark dried fruits, some earthyness, hint of strawberries, the long end is spicy and have an influence on chilis. With yeast the taste is very smooth and each compenents are better balanced. Almost full bodied, high and smooth carbonation. The great aroma, also balanced and enjoyable beer with saucy.

Pours almost black. Medium amount of brown head. Stingy, warming mouth feel at first, but gets a bit more rounded after a while. Sweet and bitter. Raisins, alcohol, plum, coffee, chocolate, malt. Good, but a bit too extreme alcohol.

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 ?
