3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Poured into my Orval chalice a deep reddish brown with a modate forming khaki head. Nose of raisins and dark toasted, caramel-like sugars. Tasted of major raisin and prune tones along with other dark fruits. Mildly vinous, thick and full bolides although it became a little more drying towards the finish. Malty sweetness, caramel, toffee-nut. Low bitterness overall pretty fruity and sweet.

330 ml bottle. A284. BB 11/10/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Dark transparent reddish brown colour with a small light tan head.
Sweet dark fruity aroma with caramel, brown sugar, raisins and even some chocolate. The flavour is rather nice with the loads of dark fruits, raisins, plums, mild hops and caramel malt. Mild bitterness in aftertaste. Not bad. Quite rich too. I could have another one.

A good brew but not over the top great. Aroma is caramel, bread, toast. Taste is that belgian buz you get with a little oakiness. Finishes is mostly dry and pleasant. Overall, good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Brown sugar, caramel, malty and sweet. Cloudy brown with a brown head. Very sweet brown sugar, some raisins and dark fruit but really the syrupy malts dominate completely. In the right mood I would love this, but it is to sweet, malty and rich for casual consumption.

Bottle from a Delhaize in Leuven. Poured a clear amber-brown body with a huge, lasting whtie head. Caramel malt in the nose, dusty, slightly eggy too. Pleasant, simple malty taste, some tobacco, definitely avoids being too sweet. While definitely not wild in any way, and doesnít stand out in the crowd, this is a flawless, enjoyable beer.

When Iím older I shall look like the Petrus dude, Iím sure. With less beard and robes and a lot more ink. I love that photo of the old guys covered in tattoos, the ones who really donít give a toss. Iím dreaming of Cornwall and Dorset again. The paella we had in Lyme Regis really was sublime.
