3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear mahogny colour and a small off-white head that fades fast. Aroma of caramel, oak, syrup, some smoke, forest floor and spices. The flavour has more smoke and is nicely balanced. Has a very slick and smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A good and well-balanced Belgian style ale with a nordic touch. Nice!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske fra Vinmonopolet. Mørk kobberfarget, litt skumrand, lite karbonert. Gjær, jord, løv, tre, brent sukker, knekk, malt. Ingen slager hos meg. En ganske besk smak av jord og brent sukker. Savner mer fruktighet i en belgian strong-ale

Finish microbrew. Quite exciting just to find it and buy it, but it’s just so boring. Everything about it, actually. Not too excited about neither taste or aroma, but generally it’s ok to drink. Nice colour and body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber body with a well lasting white head. Nose is sour with notes of yeast, spices and berries. The taste is sweet and sour with a cookie note and leaves a long aftertaste. Carbonation is lively and palate surprisingly light. The alcohol is well hidden but is given away by the warmth it leaves.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Caramel, spruce and leaves in the aroma. Taste is much the same. Good body. Reminds more of a barley wine than an abbey thoug.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Orange beer with little white head. Faint yeasty aroma. Fruity sweet and yeasty taste. Alcohol comes through a bit, especially on the finish. Medium full palate with quite high carbonation. Not quite authentic Belgian taste, alcohol ruins a bit.
