3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted at Zythos Beer Festival, Belgium
Dark amber-brown beer with a nice, small but delicious tan head. Mild roasted-toasted character in the nose with some fruity aromas of fig and some plum. Smooth mouthfeel with caramel, toffee, belgian fruity yeast taste, a bit of hop in the finish. Pleasant one.

Bottle. Dark red-brown substance, small head, but nice looking. A bit of a fruity aroma, same with the taste, but a bit to watery for me to be a topper. Not bad at all, drinks very smooth.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In a 330ml bottle from the Fat Cat in Norwich. Already had a few pints, and maybe a couple of belgian beers. So I was definately not sober, though I felt bowled over by this beer at the time and reviewed it, despite being with friends (something I try not to normally do, as it can slow the evening down somewhat). They all agreed that yeas it was an awesome beer.
Pitch Black with smooth white head. Smell red fruits and plums with some alcohol wading in. Taste much more with loads of fruit, loads of rich malt and a touch of bitter hops. Some carbonation. Awesome.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle that I picked up at Bierkoning (I think), Amsterdam, Netherlands, consumed 04-11-09 Pours hazy brown. There is a deep fruitiness, dark demerara sugars, spicy yeasty, in fact a most pleasant beer. I understand that it translates as ’Mad Meg’ and the picture on the label is seemingly a combination of the anti-hero of the Pieter Brueghal painting and the large cannon named after her that resides in the market square in Gent, Belgium.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear brown colour with a good size head and good carbonation.
Aroma is a very pleasant scent that goes all around the room, nice gentle balance of fruits and malts with some good bitterness there too.
Taste is up the same alley, nice and pleasant beer, great on a autumn night!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, brewed in Belgium. Decent dark beer with caramel, toffee and oomph but missing the passion or intricacy of a classically Belgian brown ale.
