Bottle, 9.4%. Sweet aroma, hint of vanilla. Sweet flavour, some alcohol and some brown sugar. A bit too sweet for me and not quite balanced by the alcohol. Sweet apricot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a lovely, ruby brown body, looking clear, and topped by a creamy, finger-thick beige head that lasts. Dried fruits, salty licorice, brown sugar, some alcohol and a spicy hop note. Full-bodied, slighlty warming and quite fizzy in the mouth. There’s dried fruits, some fresh fruits, blue plums mostly, sugars, a little spicy touch, a fine bitterness and alcohol in the flavor. The finish is lasting, with a slight alcohol burn, dried fruits, sugars and a herbal bitterness. Some caramel and a little bready touch blends in all the way. A nice one, but not in the league of the best Belgians. Will certainly have more of this one though. (090419)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse, Snohomish, WA
Burgundy colour. Chocolatey, raisiny aroma. Sweet flavour with slight toffee character. Brown sugar finish. Far too sweet and tastes filtered...has a slick body rather than a full one and lacks complexity.
