3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330 ml from trade with Mathieu87, thanks! Into a tulip glass, ABV 9%
Brown colour on the side, towards the lighter side, with a tall off-white head, thick, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of milky chocolate, some dark fruits, seems sweet.
Tastes sweet too, malty, chocolate, raisins, molasses, liquorice, the alcohol very well hidden. Light bitterness on the aftertaste with short duration.
Medium thin body, carbonation is a bit high but without being annoying.
Overall smooth belgian strong ale, maybe too sweet at first but the light bitterness on the finish helps to balance it a little bit and makes it pleasantly drinkable.
