3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of caramel. Pours a dark brown with a fading head. Very smooth and carbonted and pleasant; somewhat heavy on the throat though. This is an interesting ale that I don’t know how to label. It aint a scotch ale, a brown ale or an abbey, but it’s definetly belgium; and that’s a good thing.

Meh pretty boring ale. Had at JKO and was pretty dissapointed. It does not have a perticularly strong aroma but it does have some nice malts and a non-existant finish.

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.

beautiful full foamy head, luscious thick dark chocolate color, but the flavor was somewhat to vinous for me as was the aroma. very warming in the ole tummy, but one more glass of this and i’d have a sore head for sure. shoots home to me yet again that i am not a huge fan of most high alchohol brews. i seem to recall liking the la chouffe more...i’ll have to check to see if i rated that one and see what score i gave it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murkey brown with a nice froathy head. Heavy fruit aroma fills the nostrils nicely (on a side note ive got a cold and the aroma feels good on my soar throat). More alcoholic flavor than the other scotch ale that I had. Still a pretty earthy flavor. Palate lingers nicely. Grab one.

One of my favourites. Aromas of malts,yeast,fruits and spicies. Taste is sweet, malty and yeasty with fruits (plum,orange), raisins and sugar. Long duration aftertaste medium sweet and fruity. Bites of alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark color with plenty of carbonation on top. Smells Belgian but not overwhelming. The taste is quite Belgian too but without being too present. Palate is quite sweet gazzy and neutral on stickiness as a Belgian. Overall regular but nothing else..

11.2 oz bottle served in a Westmalle chalice. Malty nose. Clear rich brown color with a short but thick, fine bubbled, never-ending head. Creamy mouthfeel, a little carbonation sting. Malt dominates the flavor. There’s a tiny bit of sharp edge in the nose & flavor.
