3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an average frothy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Body is red brown and hazy. Aroma contains dark bread, molasses, lemon, dough, grape, raisin, forst fruits, chery, wine and port, coriander and other spices, and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic and light bitter, to go to sweet and to finish light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is watery and carbonation soft to flat. A good complex beer that would have scored higher if carbonation wasn’t too low and texture would have been less watery.

It pours a cloudy brown with white head. It has basement and earthly aromas. There is also a hint of cheese. It has a earthly character to the taste with herbal tendencies. It is dry on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served @ 55f in a goblet. Pours a lively dark brown with a short lasting white head. Soft caramel and herbal aromas. Flavours bring caramel, dates, brown sugar, and earthy herbs. Despite the sweet flavours the finish is not cloying and almost off-dry. Probably helped by the effervescent carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A catch-up rating. Haven’t had this one for some time. Light sugary fruity nose, small herbal notes, toffee, yeast. Medium reddish-brown color, and a ring of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Thin, gentle fruity initial, matured and delicate, yeasty, light cocoa. Very earthy and complex. Solid, sweet, and not as overpowering as the 8 and the 10. Somehow it all belnds and tastes just right. Love it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Marrón oscura. Espuma media nada duradera. Muy muy carbónica. Aroma ligeramente frutal, y algo ahumado. Predominio del dulce, caramelo y frutas. Muy bebible. Pero final algo decepcionante, le falta contundencia.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel glass. Clear honey brown with a medium-sized soapy head with champagne like bubbles. Nose has muscat, fennel, plum and dried apricot. Active carbonation at first but becomes flatter the longer it sits. Great complex fruit flavor with a little bit of earthiness detectable as well. Taste is sweet with a little bit of pepper and spice. Gets sweeter the longer it sits as well, with candy sugar standing out on the finish.
