3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A sweet/light/crisp quad. Hits the notes you would expect - sour cherry, yeast/bread, lemon, brown sugar. High ABV, so savor it slowly.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Port Street Beer House, Manchester. 03.11.13. Purple tinged, dirty brown colour. Minimal, tan head. Aroma of pear drops. Has a toast with butter and jam sweetness too. Taste is ripe fruit, with a caramel sweetness. The booze is well hidden. Finish starts off sweet and ends dry. Ridiculously easy to drink. The fact I wanted more than would have been good for me, helps give it the high rating!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Massive beer! Pours deep dark brown with creamy browny head which is extremeley long lasting. Aroma is mainly dark fruits and dried fruits - prunes predominantly. Typical Belgian yeasty scents are present as well of course. Very thick in palate, sweet in taste with earthy counterbalance. Alcohol is very well masked by the above and the beer warms you up with every sip without the spirit tastes. Very good slow sipper which can be served as a dessert as a standalone course.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Det här var en riktigt bra öl, jag förväntade mig något ganska spretigt och jävligt men det här var fint balanserat och med en fin känsla av hantverk. Smaken bar toner av råsocker, russin och belgisk jästkultur, kroppen var stabil till tusen och det här var en ytterst behaglig upplevelse på alla möjliga vis.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown beer with a beautiful, big, dense and beige head. The nose of dark fruits, sightly sweet, spices, raisins, prune and hint of strenght of alcohol, with yeast also sweet berries and marshmellows. Taste of dark fruits, some roasted malts, lots of herbal-spicy dryness, that dominates the end. Almost full bodied, smooth and pleasant carbonation, that makes this beer nice and almost easy to drink. A high potential beer, complex and tastefull.
