4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75 cl Bottle. Dark brown colour, with a nice big rocky head. Lovely aroma of some complexity and notes of medicin. A wonderful flavour, notes of spice and dried fruit, and some sweetness. The alcohol is very good hidden, and the beer ends up in a very delicate way. Absolute the best beer I ever try from this brewery.

330ml brown bottle shared with Gilvanblight and PandoraGreen, Pub Italia, Ottawa. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Almond, nutty, chocolate malt aroma. Flavour is deeply choclately. Alcohol blended in nicely. Carbonation seemed light and restrained. A big but not overpowering beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of spicy yeast, port, chocolate. Pours a murky brown, huge foamy off-tan head that sticks around. Fruit sweetness up front. Tingly palate on the tongue. A blunt chocolate finish with a strong alcohol taste that I found off-putting. Hops are definitely there as well. 100th percentile? Bah!

This is really a quality brew. A very nice aroma with a very malty, a bit chocolate, caramel like taste. Nice palate. Very tasty!

Bottle - 330ml Nice opaque muddy brown body with more than decent head. Complex is the appropriate word to describe this splendid monster: caramel, malt, a bit of roast, fruit, spices and alcohol. Warm finish.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
got a mug on draft with a big, thick, creamy, textured head that lasts and lasts. Very malty, estery, fragrant, and volatile nose. Mouth filling body with just the right amount of carbonation. Not too sweet with a very complex taste. Goes down satisfyingly. Finish is medium. Lots of lace on the glass. Dark brown, copper color. Had it on draft, but there’s bottles too at the Bodega downtown.

Beautiful color and full round taste of butter and alcohol. Slightly dissapointing/dull nose, perhaps I shouldn’t have read that review that compared this to Westleveren. Oh well. Incredible beer nonetheless.

Nice fruity/malty aroma. Pours a nice rich brown with a rich long lasting head. A hint of fruit with a strong maltiness. Pleasant on the palate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer poured a cloudy deep brown color w/ orange highlights; thick lasting head and lacing. The aroma had dark fruit, malts, coriander, and a slight spice note. The flavor was sweet w/ malts and dark fermented fruit, and coriander. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and creamy.
