3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from speciaalbierpakket.nl, ABV 8.4% batch 20120106b BB 02-03-2015 (so more than 2 years old), large sample, served in a trappist glass. Initially clear ruby color, medium lasting rocky light brown head, leaving thick lacing. Aroma of lots of cookie, biscuit and caramel, slight hint of raisin, bit fruity, slight sweet candy, hint of spicy yeast. Great belgian strong ale style. Taste has some licorice dryness with some slight sweetness, bit salty. The cookie is completely blown away in taste unfortunately, as that was the part I loved in the aroma. Finish is a bit dry. Soft to meduim carbonation though, full bodied. Looks are fantastic, aroma is wonderful, the flavor cannot live up to that unfortunately.
