Draught. Ambery brown colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramel, alcohol and some fruits. Flavour is alcohol fruits and some yeast. The alcohol comes through too clearly in this one, so I have a hard time appreciating it that much...

fiulijn (15330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle at Bier Circus, Bruxelles
The color is very dark, almost black; it has a compact beige head. There is aroma of dark malts, but it’s also fruity (apples). Good body strength, with round and smooth mouthfeel; strong flavor of dark caramel, some roasted malts and liquorice; it has just a medium-low residual sweetness; correct bitterness; in the final there is some alcohol perception.
Solid brew, well brewed, but too much liquorice for me.
