3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Vintage 2001, Sampled 2005] An unclear amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits as well as some yeast. The flavor contains notes of prunes, and over ripe fruits, and with a dry slightly roasted end. The mouthfeel is very carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour. The aroma is softly smoky and chewy. A little bit of sweet caramel and a bit of toasted wheat character. A bright fruitiness along with some light sweet rye character. A little bit of weizenbock like banana character but in a more Belgian type of malt profile. Even a touch of clove as well. Itís okay - but it doesnít really hit the high notes for me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh bottle from St. Hubert. Pours black and I thought it a stout, rather a sweet stout that grew on me as it had more body and smooth complexity. Now for its style, it is a tad below average. Black with decent white head. Malty aroma. A tad above average mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Original Rating (to be re-entered):
Rerate (5-1-5-2-11=2.4): Caramel, sherry and orange liqueur-like aromas. Opaque brown-copper with low, fizzy, off-white, fully-diminishing head. Yeasty, madeirized sherry flavours with orange and herbal notes. Very dry, medium-light body with low carbonation. Not suited for aging, I suppose. Bottle sampled with Oakes, Rastacouere, St-Eric and Ungstrup.

(Bottle) Pours a amber body with a thick lasting white head. Aromas of fruit, spice and slight cherry. Nice Belgian flavours with strong spices and finishes somewhat tart. Good complexity.
