I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

Bottle. Deep clear nougat brown body with a small white head. Aroma is caramel, candy sugar, Belgian ale yeast and hints of raisins. Taste is mild grainy caramel, Belgian ale yeast, hints of raisins and caramel. Smooth body, mild carbonation. Another Italian beer which works well with food but tend to be slightly boring otherwise. Still, itís rather enjoyable. The Belgian ale yeast tones could of course be something else, but I strongly suspect this should be in the "Belgian Ale" category. I guess only the brewers can confirm or deny this properly.

Pours dark red with a thick white head. Nose is sweet ripe cherries and apricot with Belgian candy sugar. Taste is sweet with an odd bitter metallic bite on the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Big aftertaste with medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, chocolate, cacao, malt sweet, sweet dark malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20111108]

Draft at Bir&Fud. Dark variegated amber, fluffy beige head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is smoked butterscotch. Odd but interesting.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2008
Good cream coloured head over hazy amber beer. Vinegar, wood, stale cookies, tinned mushrooms aroma’s. Lactic, cheesy flavour, resulting in sharpish MF, thinnish, and generally totally unbalanced. Something’s been tried, here, but it obviously didn’t succeed.

[Damn - I forgot I had to rate the St. Johnís Dark ale and Kolsch I had this summer - hereís what I remember. I will re-rate if I find other bottles] Dark brown, opaque body. Caramel, molasses and ripe fruit in the aroma. Taste is full and complex with hazelnut, licorice and roasted grains. Medium to full-bodied, nice long finish.
