4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vintage 2005, corked bottle
Dark color; huge and compact head. Malt aroma, with light noble vanilla notes and very light spices. A light hop note. Subtle.
Round taste, correct soft malt, a lot of caramel (getting more bitter at the end), warming. At the end there is also a presence of roasted malt, roasted nuts and liquorice.
A very good example of Strong Belgian Ale, malty enough, with some interesting hints, and every element is well blended together.
