2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not as richly alcoholic as I might have preferred, yielding to a caramely sweetness that could have used some carbonation to temper it. One dimensional and blah. Perhaps better out of the cool tall Belgian glass.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 330ml bottle from LCBO, Summerhill in Toronto, ON. 8.4% Alc./Vol. Pours a clear amber colour with a minimal lasting white head. Aroma is complex but candy and liquorice are pronounced. Whiff of hoppy aroma is present. Sweet candy flavor blends well with the traditional Belgian yeast and malts. Finishes off with a well balanced hoppy finish. Body is surprisingly light for a Belgian strong ale. Med - high carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mörkröd med ordentlig skumkrona. Omedelbar sötma, med lång karamell och malt. Styrkan märks inte alls. Någon tomhet i sena eftersmaken.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Perhaps I didn’t pour this correctly as there was a lot of yeasty flakes floating in this. I drank it anyway as it tasted OK. Caramel at first sip, smoothing out to make a high alcoholic finish. Nice, I’ll have to try this again as I think the flakes of yeast subtracted from the brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In mine I noticed hints of oats and some what of a bread like taste? The body was almost a light chocolate color, and I agree it was slighty sweet with a citrusy/dry finish. Very smooth and quite drinkable, this was a very good ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber, decent sized white head for 8% ABV, nice fine lacing. Sweetness and fruit in the aroma. Very sweet, with a nicely done alcohol finish.
