3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Aroma: raisins, cane sugar, candied fruits, Taste: light sweet, medium bitter, light sour, fruity - candied fruits, raisins, rough bitterness, Palate: full body, oily texture, average carbonation, long bitter sweet finish. Overall: good, pleasant, but expected more, no head, rough bitterness, -lower drinkability, less complex. It is a very good Belgian strong ale, but not something worth die for :)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Gusher. Nice deep sunrise orange/almost amber, pretty clear, with an average, creamy, not too persistent off white head. On the nose brown sugar, toffee, slightly toasted malts, fruit esters and yeast. Not much alchool, just a hint. Moderately sweet without being cloying, slightly spicy, malty and sugary. Quite velvety and slick. Very clean and refined aftertaste. Ridicolously easy to drink, no way this is a 8.4% beer! Average to lively carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Pleasently surprised, very good BSA.
