4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a reddish brown with a big tan head and a sweet aroma of cherries, caramel and sugar syrup. The taste is sweet and a bit alcoholic, but surprisingly complex. There’s lots of sweet malts, with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, overripe fruits, brown sugar and some yeast. The finish is a nice lasting mixture of medium-bitter hops, some sticky sweetness and warming alcohol. Very nice!

Buena cuádruple. color caoba oscuro con tonos rojizos y espuma beige de densidad media. El aroma es, principalmente, de fruta ácida y malta. En boca muestra esa acidez equilibrada con un final de alcohol también muy matizado. Grata experiencia.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark chocholate body, slight beige head. Watery sugar nose. Firmly sweet body but no Belgian warmth to the middle. Slightly dense finish of nothing real actually too formidable. Fairly safe, not at bogging as the Red Wine version.
