Pours muddy brown with a thin head that dissappears quickly. A masterpiece in smell with tones of cinnamon, anis, oranges and fruity tones from the yeast. It is medium to full-bodied. The tasting only enhances the aromatic pleasures. Stunning!

quite lively beer that came out by itself as i got the cap off. no big spill though, and pouring made it relax. clear dark amber, smooth but a bit fluffy at first light brown head.
malty, nutty, dark fruity, mild spicy aroma.figs, blue berries, cardemom, mild alc aroma.
flavor is fruity, moderately boozy, mild to moderatly spicy, flavor is malty, ever so slighlty mild blue berry sourish, mild nutty, well blended. spices could be cardemom.
comes off as a very well brewed well rounded brune beer, of the not-so-sour kind.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 750ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Dark amber to chestnut with white head. Some darker roasted malts lead the way in a relatively simple but pleasing beer. A little woodiness in the malt with just a touch of smokiness, there appears to be some Belgian yeasty spicing, quite possibly the effect of the yeast and a little greenish hop, but in general this is about the maltiness. The strength doesn’t really show through. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Chouffe version: Malt and chocolate aroma. Sweetish, malty, whisky and chocolate flavor. Some alcohol. This beer is reasonably well hopped, but that is hidden by the velvety sweetness. Very likeable beer, tasty and powerful. 8 3 8 4 15 = 3.8
