Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear light to medium brown with a large (3-4 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and produced poor lacing.
The aroma was very sweet and hoppy with a sweet bread malt, a nice floral hop and a sweet earthy yeast and had notes of caramel, dried dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a strong alcohol presence.
The taste was right off the bat, sweet, malty and a tad acidic with a strong caramel note. The flavor then progressed to be a little acetic with a nice dose of dried fruit with the end having a rather strong alcohol flavor that was left lingering for a nice duration after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a dice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall a nice bold tasting Ale with some really nice malt characteristics that you can only get from a really decent Belgian brew.

Doesnt look like much. Clear brown and fizzy. Mid to high carbonation. Sweet candy sugar aroma. Warming on the palate. Has a boozy taste to it like cognac or brandy. Sugary sweet at times like a dessert wine. Not bad but not particulary good either.

33o ml bottle that was a gift from my friend Paul. Pours a muddy brown that eventually clears to a light haze with a moderate, fairly creamy tan head that lasted through the first two sips and left little lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel with a bit of spice noted. The flavor is caramel with notable sweetness, dates, and a bit of milk chocolate. Mild spice presumably from the yeast. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Somewhat smooth and silky on the palate. Enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Schiuma bianca sporca, fine e persistente, colore ramato.
All’olfatto emerge il profumo del caramello, di frutta a pasta gialla, di prugne e qualche nota di tostato.
Il corpo č medio e risulta essere una birra estremamente equlibrata ed armonica in cui il dolce iniziale viene bilanciato da una bassa carbonatazione e da una piacevolissima nota amarognola che persiste nel palato.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromat: brzoskwinie, miód, karmel.
Wygląd: barwa ciemno-miedziana, piana obfita, zdobi szkło.
Smak: spora słodyczy, brzoskwinie i karmel, lekki alkohol.
Tekstura: spora ciała, trochę zbyt niskie nasycenie.
Ogólne wrażenie: mocno słodowe i aromatyczne, dość pijalne, a przez to zabójcze, przydałoby się więcej nasycenie.
