Sweet and quite pruney aroma, with the typical notes of dark fruits for a belgian strong ale like this. Dark brown body with a reddish tint, small off-white head. Prunes and sweetness in the flavor, notes of some brandy, maybe a hint of apple, light alcohol in the end. Nice and decent, but not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Potters’ beer supposed to be served in a stone jar, but I pour it into a trappist chalice since I hate being served beer of which I cannot see the colour. Yellow beige, dense, sticky head over a dark brown beer with reddish hue, lightly hazy. Fruity aroma with lots of deep maltiness, floral hops, plums, banana, pear, chocolate, butterscotch, dark candi sugar, brambleberries, candied dates; sweet caramelly taste with dark fruits, apple, banana, full and agreeable maltiness, soft, light sourish touch and liquorice, delicate carbonation, bitterish finish with peppery hops and a subtle roasted accent (coffee) as well as warming, but nowhere disturbing alcohol. I enjoyed this very much and as I stated in my rating of Pater Van Damme, I am convinced the latter was an alias of this, at least ten years ago when I tasted both of them side by side and could not find any difference whatsoever.

Presenta color marrón oscuro con excesiva capa de espuma que no deja servirse bien en la copa, manteniendo una fina capa al final; aromas a caramelo, malta tostada, frutos rojos y especias; en boca entrada picante y maltosa con notas a miel y vainilla; cuerpo y carbónico medios en una cerveza ale que peca en exceso de especias pero se bebe fácilmente.

Bottle in my used-to-be-clean living room. Are you kidding me ???? This bitch even gushes more than their damn ’maeght van gottem ’ . And this time, lets not blame a Hopcone ( that should not be in a bottle of beer anyways , since it’s a clear invitation for infections and have been proven to cause some serious gushing ) no, this is just a proof of a bad quality in the beer, somewhere .
After cleaning up the floor and couch ( thnx for that guys ) The foam had disapeared . Zero resistancy, even though the pour took 2 glasses for half the bottle ( that, BTW, kept gushing )
Smell is metallic and grainy-sweetness, as well as sugar . Overcarbonated .
Taste is straight sugar - caramelly . Some earthy undertone, some bitterness .
Tastewise, i’d say I like this . Even to the point of ’I really like this ’ . But lets be honoust here . Overcarbonated, simple, yet still not even free of brewing mistakes ( too much sugar in refermentation ? ) ... Its a yummy beer , with bad quality . And how the hell can I rate it high if it has low quality ?
___ otherwise, the score would be about 3,8-3,9 / 5 ___

33cl flesje bij café De Gouverneur
Alcoholpercentage van 8%
Uitgeschonken in Tripel Karmeliet glas
Uiterlijk: lichtbruine kleur met flinke witte schuimkraag. Idem als de Maeght van Gottem een flinke 'gusher'.
Aroma en smaak: caramel, zoet, koekjesdeeg, bittertje
Conclusie: lekker licht donker bier, moet ervan houden. Maar is wel lekker hoor.
