3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - drink after 21/12/12. Very dark - almost black with a slight red tinge. Big foamy beige head endures, thick lacing. Smell - yeast and milky instant coffee. Body is medium to light and very foamy. Typical of Belgian style beers but really not my type of thing. Taste - malts, spice, sweetened milky coffee or chicory, dank cave (if that counts as a flavour) alcohol comes through noticeably but not as much as it could at 10.5%, tamarind is there as advertised. True to the style and decent enough.

Pours a dark brown beer with a light brown head. Aroma: complex and slightly spicy. Palate: sweet, tiny bit spicy and a lot of malty bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: mild carbonation, bit sticky. A little disappointing, still ok though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Best after 12/21/12
Pours dark brown with a rim of light yellow foam. Smells of candy sugar, dark malts, belgian esters, a touch of cinnamon and a little ever so slight chili pepper character. Taste is sweet and belgian yeasty with malts, clay, grass, slight heat, raisin and oranges. Full bodied with an almost cotton candy tackiness, medium carb and dry finish. This is a meh beer to me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Thanks to fiulijn]. Bottle. All aroma when opened with notes of caramel and toffee. Very dark brown colour with a beige and quickly diminishing head. Aroma has notes of red fruits, slightly sweet, no cloying, notes of coffee, toffee and caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning with aa good maltiness, notes of toffee and caramel with yeasty and spiced hints, also chocolate plumbcake are present.. The final is slightly bittery wit ripe fruits and spices. Dense and creamy on palate with hints of alcohol that is hidden by caramel.
