2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First of all, let me say I think the heat might have got to this in storage (brought in Japan) as it doesn’t taste quite as I remember it from Belgium, but still good. Very effervescent with only a little on the nose, head soon dissipating. A distinct almond taste that I hadn’t noticed before joining the alcohol. I’ll re-review before long, but have to say, this is a little disappointing, and I can’t get excited about it.

Botlle at home. Pours deep brown with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, plum, light liquorice, belgian yeast, raisins, light sugary feel. Taste is quite heavy sweet, with loads of dried and dark fruits, rasins, fig, plum. Quite complex, but a wonderful yeast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Pours copper with a beige head. The aroma is yeasty with some caramel malt. Medium to full body with average carbonation. The taste is pretty sweet with some acidity from overripe stone fruits. Caramel, honey, raisins, spices and alcohol. A little to sweet in combination with the high alcohol volume.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky brown body, beige head that lasts. Intense aroma of banana, cake, chocolate, leather, herbs, light vinous notes and even a hint of cinammon. Medium sour taste dominated by yeast, with light fruity notes of apricot and strawberry - these belgian strong ales always remind me so much of fruit cakes. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation. What is there much to say? It deserves the praise it gets.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep Amber-brownish pour, turbid with a large frothy off-white head, crazy retention. Nose is chewy dried fruit (dates, prunes, figs), toffee, vanilla, molasses, leather, super-faint phenolic note. Mouth is medium bodied, decent carbonation, lightly creamy, sweetness, dried fruit, spice cake, candy sugar, orange peel, almost no detectable bitterness, finishes with some spice and a pleasant warmth. Very good.

Mörk brun öl med beige skum. Malt, jäst, bröd, sötma, karamell, russin. Bra styrka i den utan att alkoholen stör utan den är väl dold.
