2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
<b>In short: </b>An extra sweet heavy Belgian dark ale. Ok at first but a full bottle is too much.
<b>How: </b>Bottle 330ml, drank when 1 year old or so but still before best-before date
<b>The look: </b>Very cloudy brown (shit-brown) body topped by a very small tan head
<b>In long: </b>A whole lot of sweet malts. Dates, raisins, dark grapes and brownies covered by a mountain of toffee. Some wood. Syrupy sweet with a strong brown sugar sensation, so sweet that it makes the beer a sipper. Leafy hops with earthy and tobacco notes in the finish lightens it up a bit. Very candy-ish beer. I usually don’t like those sweet Belgian dark ales but this one was ok at first although it did get sickening by the end of a single bottle. Overall not really offensive, could work as dessert beer. Not something I want to have again, anyway if I ever try to order this beer to a Flemish waitress I would probably end-up with Seafood and Linguini or even worse, a slap on the face.
