1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2009 2007 Vintage, 2009 re-rate
Muddy reddish-brown colour and the glass is filled with chunks. The aroma is heavy malt, some liquorice and spice. Soft body shows some pleasant brown sugar notes and light spice. Rounded body is smooth until a bit of alcohol kicks in late. Not bad with a couple years on it. 2-6-7-3-14 = 3.2
Fresh version, 2005 re-rate: Golden-brown colour. Slightly spicy aroma. Metallic, slightly sweaty character. Spicy palate. Thin bodied and not at all enjoyable. Score for this rating.

An ounce of appearance is worth a pound of performance. The glass is everything, the beer itself is an average tasting amber ale with a medium body. Just be careful as you get to the half way point.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
November 2005. I had decided to save this bottle until I got the Kwak glass, but I couldnít wait... 33 cl bottle and the beer is clear and nice amber with a red hue and the head is huge and nice. The aroma has notes of fruit, spice and sweetness. The flavour is sweet, but itís nicely balanced of a nice hoppy bitterness. It has notes of fruit (slightly perfumed), caramel and spice. Itís a surprisingly refreshing beer, that in spite of itís 8 % seems light but yet full-bodied. Itís really nice.
