3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a semi-cloudy darkish amber color with a small off white head that leaves light lace in the glass. Notes of caramel, toasted malts, prunes, tobacco, earth, brown sugar, mixed fruits, and nuts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but didn’t live up to expectations.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color with big beige head and amber highlights. Aroma is very Belgian. Good amount of spicy yeasts, good malt, flowery. Taste is balanced, malty, spicy, sweet, a bit toffee. Carbonation is not too high, unlike many Belgians. Pleasant flowery finish. Superb Belgian Strong. Nothing to criticize, but also nothing that makes it *very* special. Still deserves this high rating.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy brown with slight tan head. No lacing. Spicy and herbal aromas of mint, anise, and clove. Flavours bring caramel, anise, corriander, vanilla, and sassafras. Very high carbonation pinches the tongue. Finish leaves a cola like feel, slightly sticky with lingering sassafras.
