3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy brown with a thick head that leaves insane lacing. Aroma of belgia sugar, spices and that’s about it. Taste is sweet indeed but not too much with nice raisins and spices making it work. Some bananas. Body is medium+, carbonation moderate. Mouthfeel is smooth and aerial, quite nice. An old faithful!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bu en pression de 50cl : Une brune jolie qui tire sur l’ambrée, mais comme souvent la mousse tombe très vite.
Un nez peu fin, mais une petite durée sympathique avec une bouche qui tient la banane pour commencer et le grillé pour finir.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy dark red body that is covered by a scarce off-white head. Nose has notes of yeast, alcohol, caramel, honey and spices. The taste is quite dry with a long warm finish. Carbonation is fairly high and the palate very full and syrupy. Quite decent but a little too dry and one-dimensional.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a bottle at the liquor store in Leerdam. The beer has a chocolate color with a red glow and a nice cream colored head, excellent CO2 level. The aroma is very strong and you can immediately notice tones of chocolate and raisins. The taste is bitter by the malts with hints of coffee and bananas. The finish is pretty dry with a light bitterness. A nice dubbel, but a little too bitter for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Apple pie smell from bottle, sour-alcoholic smell from glass. Nearly black cola colour, beige foam. Quite sparkling, little sour alcohol taste a bit remindds me to champaigne. Bitter aftertaste just like any commercial beer. Not very exciting and not really my style, but not bad.
