3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light nose, some caramel and fruity notes. Nice subtle sourness and tartness - a little different for the style. Light-bodied and not overly flavourful, but interesting, well balanced and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another random one from Oblivion. This Belgian ale was overall thin and a tad on the dry side, but on that note the alcohol was very well hidden. It tasted and smelled nutty with some soft yeast and caramel notes. Finishes dry with a touch of cherry.

Draft. Sweet aroma and flavor. Nice mouthfeel. Almost a little too sweet for me. Overall a great beer though.

Bouteille de 2012. Brun acajou, effervescence faible, col beige foncé et assez fin. Caramel, fruits noirs, un rien d’épices et de réglisse. Comme elle a bien vieilli, cette Noël sort du lot.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap @ delirium. Very dark brown, brown head. Malts, dried fruity aroma. Taste is dried fruit, earthy, slightly honey, banana, some coffee bitter but alas also a mettalic finish. sweet. Overall not that balanced, nose that great, missing on something. Could do better than this with not from ta, and/or some aging.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is a bit sour, sweet and lively. Dark brown in colour, with LOTS of sediments in bottom of glass. Taste is not very much of anything, pretty well balanced between sweet and bitter. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Light body and fizzy palate.

750ml bottle. Hazy amber-brown with thin off-white head. Spicy aroma, caramel, plum, dried apples, cinnamon, heavy on the Belgian yeast (doughy). Sweet-leaning and mild -- taste doesn’t keep pace with the strong aroma. Dry and light. Small, bitter finish.
