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 ?

375ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Somehow cautious and indifferent aroma, hints of chocolate, unspecific dark fruit, spices, cinnamon. Taste is moderately sweet, dark malty, hints of dark fruit, plum, grapes and the like, dark chocolate, chili, cinnamon, some warming alcohol in the finish. Heavy stuff, somehow without emphasis, not really satisfying.
