3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red colored beer.
Aromas of red fruit, strawberries and berries, yeast, chalk, leaves, wood, hint of peppery dust, cinnamon and meat, some malts, toast and liquorice (wood).
Flavours of spices like pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, dry, bitter, malt toast, berries, some strawberries and a hint of cherries, barley malts, nuts, leaves, some autumnal herbs and hay toast.
Aftertaste is toasty, malty, peppery, woody and porridge.
Low to medium carbo, creamy and lightly blown spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
One part of me really likes this beer with the pepper and such but the other half misses some interesting/complex body. Good beer but not what I expected.

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.

38cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2012, with cinnamon, tamarind and chili peppers, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, spicy/sweet and slightly woody/fruity, not too heavy, yet not balanced, clear, good head, good and original brew, yet expensive!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Martys, drunk 4/5/14
Very fragrant nose, pralines and toffee, quite lighthearted for such a big beer. Some light prunes add tartness and the caramel-vanilla cream sweetness actually sits in the background.
Dark, mahogany with ruby tints. The head is light tan and moderately well-retained.
Phew. Strong. Chiles are very lightly notable and sweet chocolate, tart prunes and almost a mint-like spiciness really shock the palate. Warmth on the end, though itís not overtly alcoholic. Toffee sweetness is chewy, but the ample, expansive carbonation obliterates any sense of syrupiness/thickness that may exist here. Still, you canít hold back such bold flavors, even with the disruptive carbonation, and it gets pretty fatiguing after just a few sips. Do love the chiles, though and the chocolate-cinnamon note is quite reserved and adds more complexity. Actually quite astringent on the finish. Like eating a dried red chili pepper soaked in tamarind and soy sauce. Ok, not really. I donít know. Seems pretty far-gone from the base Judgment Day. Belgian, strong or light are still subtle beers and chili, cinnamon and tamarind really donít work with them. Or so I think.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml cork and caged bottle shared by Dean. Poured a murky muddy brown with a brown small foamy head. Aroma of milk, peppers, bad stale green peppers, soap, old toast. The body was foamy with loads of carbonation, a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, notes of bad chocolate, old green peppers and bad bread. Not sure if I drank the same beer as all the other raters (I know I did it was a corked bottle) wish mine tasted/rated like everyone elseís.
