Draught at Zythos Beer Festival, March 7th and 8th 09 Pours Pours amber with a light beige head, some icing sugar and brown sugar combine on the nose. The taste is simple but unsuprisingly given the aroma maybe a touch on the sweet side. Maltiness carries and there are molasses and toffee with some fruit, its fine. A6 A4 F6 P3 OV13 3.2

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at DeCiccos. Deep dark brown beer with a very thick tan beige head. Aroma is quite nice... rich sweet special B plumminess. There’s a nice malty richness with a light fruity/spicy yeast. A little bit of cherry aroma and some light toasty/crackery malts. The flavour is actually less impressive than the aroma might have suggested. Soft simple Belgian sweetness. Light cherry fruitiness wiht a soft wheaty/bready maltiness. A touch of figgy sweetness. Decent balance with a lingering fruitiness. It’s a pretty decent brew.

Pours a deap red dark brown with a nice light tan head. Its aroma are fruity and sweet. It has a very deap carbonation all along and has flavors of sweet grapes or plums and the strong taste of roasted malts. I could call it: Crunchy Roasted Nuts. It is very pleasant and a very good lasting taste.

Bottle pours medium brown with copper highlights. Nice fluffy head and good carbonation. Raisins are a large part of the aroma. Good caramel and slightly fruity body. A bit of smoke in there too. Nice beer.

Per ricordarmi il nome ho dovuto scriverlo sul cellulare. Buona ale belga, grande dolcezza forse un poco esagerata, meriterebbe un minimo di complessita in piu, se state a sentire questo vecchio brontolone.
