3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
11oz bottle-Pours a tan/coffee color thick head, reduces to an airy foam. Color is a very cloudy dark amber, talk about nonfiltered/natural-there’s decent size particles settling down through the beer. Taste is a nice sweet sensation with a bit of bite. This beer has a creamy feel to it. A nice beer, others at a more moderate price are as enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unclear dark red amber, with a lasting and lively off-white head. Caramel, molasses, some dried fruits in the aroma. The caramel and dried fruit aroma, appears sweetish, but the actual dryness makes it very drinkable. Some licorice and pepper in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong aroma of medium dark fruit. Brown malty yeasty aroma. It smells brown. Vigorous, persistent tan head. Lacing. Starts with mysterious fruit, passes to something like bread dough. Then caramel and chocolate notes rise. It is a bit thin, say medium mouthfeel. It is certainly unique and complex. It is good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is an opaque reddish-brown color. The head is small to begin with and dissipates quickly.
S: The nose has the usual yeast and bready quality with some hints of dark fruit. The bulk of the nose, however, is the sweet caramel and toffee from the malt.
T: Like the nose, the yeast and malt really define this beer. A lot of sweetness from the malts with dark fruits (particularly raisins and figs) with a mild spice.
M: The body is medium with a high level of carbonation.
D: The world of Belgians is sort of a new thing to me, but it would seem I’m off to a good start. A very nice beer, indeed.

Bottle. This was the last in the process of tasting all three of these brews. Aroma, flavor and body was much the same as the 10 and 8. With a lowerer and smaller alcohol finish. This was a good thing. The complex flavor and finish generated more character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2009 Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Brown colour. Nice but week hoppy and malty aroma. OK but not fantastic flavvor. Oily palate. I was quite disapointed about this beer.
