3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Interesting aroma, full of dark, sweet malts, dried fruits, breadiness and faint milky chocolate, along with some light orange zest, yeast esters in the background and a certain dusty spiciness. Clear, deep mahogany color with a mostly subsiding, uneven, off-white head. The dark, rich sugary maltiness comes through rather strongly in the flavor as well, where it meets an undercurrent of warming, peppery alcohol and doughy, fruity yeast, finishing with some lingering anise, raisin and a slight berryish tang. Smooth and full on the palate with a suitably large body. Not one to be overlooked.

Pours a muddy amber. Sweet prune and malt aroma. Nicely sweet with vanilla and prune with hints of chocolate on the finish. Very malty aftertaste. Creamy coating mouth feel. A good drink.

Lots of bitterness and dark overly ripe fruit. Less sweet than I had expected. Lot’s of spicy notes as well. And yeah, in my opinon, the alcohol comes on too strong. Not my cup of beer really, allthoguh I might have had it served too cold. Very cool bottle however (including the name and the label), and that’s always something!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma for this brew could be smelled from a distance as soon as it was uncorked. This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy brown colored body with lots of fine particulate dark. The nice scrmptious aroma had brown malt caramel malt and dark malt notes. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of caramel dark malt and brown malt and was mildly vinous . Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Rusty amber, moderate off-white head, foamy, decent lacing.   Rich smoked malt aroma.   It doesn’t come across as a smoked beer, but there is a huge smoked/campfire like tinge.   Dark pitted fruit takes a back seat in this one.   Biting smokiness and almost uber band-aid.   I waS sooo looking forward to this one but its proven to be difficult to swallow.   There is also a slight cheese funk to it.   No real sweet dark pitted fruit in this one.   I can honestly say this is one of the first times I am unable to finish a 750ml.   Damnit!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown color with a thick and substantial tan head that seems to stick around for quite awhile. Some lacing. Caramel aroma with hints of cinnamon and sweet molasses. Flavor contains enjoyable plum elements along with brown sugar and some lingering chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden but is present in the finish. With a fair price point and a solid taste, this could easily be my fallback belgian style beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby/brown color,small tan head that faded quickly leaving little to nothing behind.The aroma was malty and fruity with maybe a slight red wine like aroma coming through as well.Nice malty fruity flavor up front with a smooth feel thoughout and in the end a mild finish of malt semi sweet and a bit of a mild alcohol burn in the tail end.My impression of this compared to the European counterparts for the style is that this brew is a bit on the weaker side.BUT it still manages to carry a pretty good flavor and smooth easy drinkability to it.Overall a good brew for the masses in this country but i could see this not having what the europeans are looking for in the style.
