3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Birch & Barley/Churchkey. Very light nose, considering. Mild malt sweetness, neutral fruit and a bit of hop flower. Alcohol sweetness. Coppery amber with mild haze, topped with huge pillowy creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with light-medium carbonation. Smooth. Starts with medium malt sweetness. Clean and not complex, with a bit of oak, cane sugar, raisin or fig, and alcohol sweetness. Clean finish with warming and nice raisin-sweet after - like rum raisin ice cream. Little bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a medium amber color with a massive off-white head that settles down to a nice thin layer.
S: Plenty of nice sugar aromas to this one. Dark candi sugar and caramel are the base with some dark fruits such as plums and perhaps blueberries.
T: Nice and sweet, like you would expect. Candi sugar all the way with the same rich fruitiness as picked up in the nose. There is a mild spice ester character that goes wonderfully with a hint of chocolate.
M: Medium in body with plenty of effervescence. The carbonation gives this one an almost creamy feel, but could be a bit more than necessary.
D: Nothing wrong with this beer at all. I quite enjoyed this one, and wouldn’t mind having another bottle.

Red brown beer with a fluffy white-brownish head. Dry malty aroma. Acidic and sweet chocolate flavour but not overdone. Not Bad. (Bottle 33cl)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
As the temperature settles, the aroma of the brown sugar and caramel is like a "blast in the face" (Matt Capone). After talking to Doctor Van Canaris from the brewery, I thoroughly enjoyed this Belgian style brown ale with smooth notes of almost brandy from the alcohol with a malty sweetness to settle on the palate.

Tastes earthy, malty, nutty, with a dry overall mouthfeel, some unsweet cola and sassafras notes, and some funk. Good palate complexity.
