3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells quite a bit of horse-blanket(Brettanomyces). Sour, fruity aroma. Very complex taste and aroma. Long lasting sour taste and hops in the finish, but not bitter tasting. Good dark belgian ale with a very interesting character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
250 ml bottle. Dark ruby red colour, almost black. Tall coarse off-white head. Soap, yeast and black pepper aroma. Feels thin-bodied, typical of the style. Complex spicy flavours that blends nicely with the otherwise dry beer. It’s a bit hard to say what spices that are there, but I’m pretty sure black pepper is one of them. And there is definitely some secret spice in there. Gentle hop bitterness throughout, but it stays nicely in the background. Really well-balanced. Somewhat acidic at the edges. I’ve seen others put their thumbs down on this beer, but I find it really nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle from Vinmonopolet (Harstad). Diminishing off-white foam over a hazy, dark brown body and with lots of sediments floating around. Nice fruity and spicy aroma. Sharp fruity tartness in flavour with hints of cloves and yeast in the background. Short aftertaste. Rather disappointing (11.12.2006).

Lively carbonation as the bottle is opened. Strong full, fruity taste, some yeast on the tongue, pricly feeling from the carbonation. A little sweet and sour. A bit on the thin side.
