3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Way too much yeast. Zero head.BIG yeasty malty aroma. Tingly palate. Little peppery flavor. Sort of bland > needs flavor. Little alcohol flavor detected as it warms up. OK but probably won’t drink ever again > lacks character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy, dark, amber hued/brown with a nice creamy/frothy tan head. Lightly sweet brown sugar-like, and mildly spicy yeast aromas. Flavors are similar to the aroma, with some slight nuttiness, and a little hint of smoke. Palate is lightly effervescent, flavors retain well, with a lightly creamy feel. Well balanced and enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2oz bottle. Aroma: Sweet malt with a brown sugar note. Juniper and allspice, yeast, dark fruits, toasted nuts, and a thick breadiness. Appearance: Dark reddish-brown. Light beige head was full and creamy with decent retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Sweet malt, again with a brown sugar quality. Jammy dark fruits, toasted nuts, bread. Sweetness doesn’t linger into the finish. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Some alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: I liked this beer, but was also somewhat disappointed by it. Didn’t have the rich melanoidin caramel flavor that I look for in the style. Still, worth a try.

what is this stuff, not a scottich,not a brown ale, not even an "abbey" ...its like a strange mix of them all, a big disappoint with this, after having la chouffe in amsterdam, this is a bastard, a good beer yes, but not near great. some wine like qualities, in taste and smell...has a nice puddle of head, in the chimay glass it had a nice boob puddle. If I hadn’t paid $12 for the bottle i would be alittle nicer to this beer, MAYBE on tap ONE day but, if u can find it on discount do it!

Tap. Brown, somewhat cloudy. Aroma is suble and dry. Has some nice basement action going on, along with some grass. Flavor is malty and delicious, with some spices and dark fruits present. Yum yum.

75cl bottle. Coudy mahogany in color. Light brown head. Diminishing within minutes. Nice body, medium. Low in flavor, but smooth. I would recommend to others, but not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery, very dark brown with a large bubbly beige head. A dry malty aroma, some licorice in there, and vinuous notes. A medium and smooth mouthfeel with rich malty flavours and a light bitter finish. Was hoping for more, though still good.

Pours a dark brown with a nice lacing off-white head. Spicy more so in scent than in flavor. Hints of fruit and earthy yeast.
