3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Over two year old bottle. Pours a deep, hazy, dark brown color with a huge, soapy, beige head. Compact aroma of Belgian yeast, brown sugar, game meat, heather, dried fruit, nuts, leather, roasted malt and cocoa. The flavor is rich with tones of licorice, alcohol, coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar and grass. Has a dry ending. Full-bodied, silky and slick mouth feel, and a surprisingly medium bitterness. A solid, strong Belgian ale which is a little more roasted and hoppy than the classics.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty, alcohol, dried fruits, vanilla, raisins, earthy, grass, herbs, spicy.
Brown/ruby colour, medium beige head, lacing.
Heavy sweetness, soft bite, lightly salty, lightly sour. Good flavours, but to me it lacks a quality that is found in the best Belgian examples of the style.
Fullbodied, lively carbonation, warming finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Mikkeller online shop. Pours deep mahogany with beige head. Aroma is sweet dark fruits. Taste verges a bit far on the sweet side of a Belgian Dark Ale initially, but settles into familiar Chimay Bleu territory soon enough. Decent effort.
