3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 Bottled. Brown beer with a beige head. Sweet and malty aroma. Warming, sweet and malty. Rating: 6-3-7-3-15-3.4. 051028
Bottle, 33cl. It’s a more or less clear beer, dark amber body topped by a beige, finger-thick head. Typical Belgo-sweet sugary nose with a good dash of alcohol and dried fruits. There’s roasted malts in there as well as a spiced note it seems. Sweet, malty flavor with dried fruits and roasted malts. A good alcohol warmth plays with my mouth and throat, and some bitterness lingers. Full-bodied and well carbonated. The finish is lasting and maybe a bit warm for this beer, but overall I really enjoy it. Well worth a revisit or two. 091102

75cl bottle from Belgium. Very red brown colour with beige thickish head. Lovely smell of rich malt and red berries. Some yeast and strong belgian ale aromas. Good in mouth. More rich malts and berries on the end. Lovely

Hazy Amber with fine white head. Malty aroma and taste - nuts & dark fruits dominates. Sweetness. A bit "earthy". Little alcohol feel. Pleasant spicy hoppy finish. Good Belgium!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Malty aroma, but a bit like flat lager. Nice dark chestnut colour, big semi-stable head. Flavour is OK malty, but with a rather weak/watery aftertaste. Nice, soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice spiced brown ale with some caramel and malt. Good balance, but needs a bit more complexity - perhaps a bit of ageing?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 0,75 ltr (BBE 2007)
Red-nut brown color, small steady beige head. Nose has alcohol, caramel, anise and light roasted malts. Liquerish, medium-bodied. Mouthfeel is a mix of carbonation (a bit too much, CO2 makes loud sound too :)) and alcohol. Flavor has yeast, sugar, malts, some fruits (raisins) and wood. Dry woody, slighly alcoholic aftertaste. Maybe not a pure "Scotch Ale", more like Belgium strong ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Medium brown colour with a thick, billowy head. Aroma of yeast, wood, prunes, figs, toffee and bog myrtle. Spicy, yeasty tones overly a rich toffeeish, earthy maltiness. Sweet demerara and deglet noor finish. Sturdy alcoholic punch comes in late. Quality brew, and after 2 years in the cellar it emerges as a world classic.
