HOME 20130329 (33 cl bottle): A clear amber coloured beer with a thin off-white-coloured foam layer. In the aroma we found some malt (light roasted), caramel sweet, liquorice. Also some off-flavours of fatty, soap, higher alcohol-like things. The taste is sweet, malty, some caramel. The bitterness and nice roasted malt we can not found in this winterale. The palate is somewhat thick of soap/higeher alcohols. Not a clear and nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, copper to brown colour with a mid-sized tanned foamy head. Yeasty, dried fruity aroma with notes of toasted malt, a tad syrupy with hints of caramel and leather. Sugary sweet flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Syrupy malty and dried fruity, raisin-like taste; slightly sticky and sweet malty finish with a well-integrated but warming alcoholic strength. 05.II.13

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle - a cloudy orangey brown colour, the cream fizzy head soon goes, makes it look rather unappealing. Got some seriously sweet fruits in the nose, molasses and caramel there as well. The first taste is a warmth, treacle, nuts, malts, ends quite long, a bit of bitter sweetness there. A bit disappointing really, I did expect a lot from this, but the ABV just overwhelms it with a boozy overkill.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge beige, dense head over fully hazy amber-brown beer. Wild fruit & yeast, typical for the brewery. Bit of soapy features in the nose. Sweet-spicy, very yeast-intoned. Again fruity notes (orange, mango). Slick, bit warming, well-carbonated. Typical Smiske brew. Not the best, certainly not the worst.
Earlier Rating: 12/19/2010 Total Score: 3.8
Huge, dense, off-white head, over lighter foxy-amber beer; some lace. Woody aroma, very sweet, darker malts & melanoidins, parsley. Wood, quite sweer, preserved cherries, alcohol & fusels, creamy vanillasauce. Slight sourishness in the finish. Very slick, bit oilyness, but not overly full-bodied; alcohol obvious. Streamlined compared to the Assebroek predecessors, maybe the sense of adventure has been culled a bit, but consistency has been gained.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Bottle. Dark amber color. No head at all. Candi sugar and maple syrup in the aroma. Massively sweet and alcoholic. Fizzy. Maple syrup. Flat and onedimensional. Sticky mouthfeel, but a short aftertaste. Still a bit more drinkable as my description suggests.
